Why the Master of Arts in Leadership?

Most leadership education programs for working professionals emphasize developing competencies in role–based managerial leadership. Our program includes developing competencies in relational and collaborative leadership. In this way, leadership is something in which every stakeholder participates, not something that only emanates from the personality traits and actions of designated leaders.

By developing a depth and breadth of capacities and skills, our graduates are more able to effectively respond to the unique challenges and opportunities of an evolving world.
