Why do we teach Strategic Leadership?

Because we believe the power of education is its ability to empower leaders. Rather than focusing on the technical aspects of business, a leadership degree helps students tap into the theories, concepts, and practices that make effective leaders—concepts that can be applied to any field—whether your focus is private industry, non-profit, small business, government or volunteerism. Challenging coursework takes students from theory to concept to practice. Academic learning is complemented by extensive online collaboration with faculty and peers. Students grow into visionary leaders who inspire effective teams, companies, and communities.
