Individualized Leadership Program

15 credits

There is no requirement to specialize in the Leadership program.  In fact, we expect that most students will take the opportunity to individualize their program to their career interests and needs.  Students can choose 15 credits of electives from various Graduate School of Management classes including Leadership electives, MBA courses, Human Resources, etc.  The option to make this an interdisciplinary program allows students to take approved graduate classes outside the Graduate School of Management as well.  Students may take classes from Arts and Sciences, Communication, Nursing and so forth.
