As today’s workforce continues to diversify, leadership tasks and responsibilities have become more complex. The Master of Science in Leadership prepares you to meet these evolving challenges by helping you cultivate a personal leadership philosophy. Leveraging students’ interdisciplinary backgrounds, this master’s degree in leadership combines real-world lessons with an action-learning approach that is designed to build and strengthen your leadership capabilities.
Our approach to cultivating strong leaders is proven to work — not just in the United States but in other countries as well, including emerging democracies where schools are using it to grow their own leadership infrastructures. As a result, we have developed strategic partnerships with the International University in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, in which they draw on our faculty to share their approach to preparing students to be effective leaders in a global community as well as the curricula they’ve developed.

- Explore key leadership areas such as: management, ethics, strategic thinking, and organizational culture
- Prepare for the challenges and opportunities associated with leading in a global world
- Exercise leadership skills through action-learning and research projects
- Improve your ability to lead and work both independently and collaboratively
