In an increasingly complex world, businesses, government, nonprofit groups, and other organizations need more than just managers—they need real leaders who can implement everything from short-term projects to major strategic objectives.

The definition and responsibilities of leadership are also evolving as working environments become more diverse, far-flung, and technology-driven. The online Master of Science in Leadership degree program provides you with the foundation to meet these new challenges by cultivating a personal leadership philosophy and developing critical leadership skills. The graduate courses in this program draw on the varied backgrounds of its students to illustrate the role of leadership in any setting, and the online format of these courses stresses collaboration and interaction at a level beyond that found in any on-ground classroom.

Program Objectives:

  • Develop and augment your leadership competencies
  • Explore key leadership issues such as management, ethics, strategic thinking, and organizational culture
  • Exercise leadership skills through action-learning and research projects
  • Improve your ability to lead and work both independently and collaboratively in an online environment
