Strong leadership comes with practice

It’s not until you actually lead a team of people that you understand the type of leader you are. We’ve taken advanced self-awareness practices from leadership development courses and built them into all our degree programs. As you take on leadership roles in a series of real-world challenges, you’ll examine your personal attributes against key leadership competencies.

Armed with this insight and the systematic feedback of your peers, you’ll work to improve the key skills you’ve identified and develop an authentic style of leadership that’s uniquely you. We provide the team, the task, and the tools—the rest is up to you.
