PLANS OF STUDY
Below are two possible plans of study for strategic leadership students.
Online courses are taken in 8-week sessions. Two sessions are offered per semester so you will see "Session 1" or "Session 2" as suggested times for the courses to be taken.
Offerings vary for the semester so this is a suggested plan of study; courses do not need to follow a specific sequence except for Cornerstone and Capstone courses.
The two-year plan below is a suggestion for those wishing to enroll in part-time study.
Cornerstone & Capstone courses:
- The Cornerstone Course, MSL 605. Leadership and Values, is our gateway course or a course that all students must first take. The course introduces students to leadership theories that will be built on throughout the program and students will complete a 360 Evaluation to develop an action plan related to their leadership skills and abilities.
- The Capstone Course, MSL 655. Project in Strategic Leadership, and MSL 660. Leadership Portfolio are required to complete the program. Each focuses on an individual student project and portfolio that integrates learning throughout the program and demonstrates each student’s unique leadership skills and attributes.
