Program Description

The Master of Strategic Leadership Development (MSLD) program in the College of Business is designed to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to lead teams, be inclusive, inspire commitment, and navigate challenges. By addressing some of the skills-gaps identified by employers in 'soft' skills and leadership skills, the MSLD will serve to expand the available talent pool locally and regionally. The curriculum includes strategic planning, design thinking, negotiation and conflict resolution, change management, and personal branding. Students will evaluate leadership styles, develop a leadership portfolio, and build a career development plan focused on leadership in a variety of business environments.
