Effective Leadership MBA Degree Concentration

Being an effective leader is not simply having a title and the ability to delegate. It requires an understanding of the myriad dimensions of leadership, from the makeup of your team to remote team management to empowering your team to excel.

Focused on current leadership methods, this degree program will help you develop into a well-rounded leader, whether you are in a leadership position for the first time, or you’ve been a long-term leader and are simply looking to refresh and enhance your leadership skills. You will take what you learn in class today and apply it at work tomorrow.

A few of the topics covered in this concentration include:

  • Virtual team leadership
  • Negotiations
  • Sustainability
  • Digital supply leadership
  • Ethics
  • Value creation

The MBA concentration in effective leadership is offered in person.
