Transformational Leadership Program Description
The M.S. in Transformational Leadership is designed for students with military management experience who wish to leverage and further their leadership training and skills in order to transition to business, non-profit, or government organizations. With online and hybrid courses, the program was constructed with an eye toward augmenting leadership competencies that were developed in the military. Students in the M.S. in Transformational Leadership will hone in on skills that are necessary to communicate persuasively, think creatively, manage change, and produce results through innovative and strategic decisions that can translate to public, private, and non-profit organization, as well as global business environments. The coursework will guide students through industry- relevant simulations and collaborative projects to acquire job-ready knowledge and the competence needed for leaders who can meet the demands of transforming and leading organizations and people through complex business scenarios.
