Integrating leadership theory, analysis, and practice, our program curriculum provides students with a multidisciplinary framework for understanding their leadership skills as well as various opportunities to practice them. Students examine key concepts such as organizational behavior, human capital management, strategic communication, leading change, and emotional intelligence through case studies and workplace-based projects. Concentration options in organizational leadership, hospitality leadership and management systems, public sector/government/military leadership, human resources leadership, and leading change management consulting enable students to further tailor their studies to meet their professional goals and interests. Class discussions also serve as a dynamic forum for students and faculty to learn from each others work experiences.
Throughout the leadership program, students create a Leadership Development Portfolio in which they reflect on the personal relevance of the lessons covered in each course and reflect on their personal leadership strengths, weaknesses, and goals. Faculty members regularly review students portfolios to provide individualized feedback on their progress and guidance on their career aspirations. Students also apply their learning in a cumulative capstone experience in their final course.
