Master of Science in Transformative Leadership

If one thinks of those leaders who made a distinctive impact, who changed their organizations, communities and the world for the better, who were ethical and value centered, who made informed data-driven decisions, who saw things no one else could see, who solved problems few might risk addressing who not only managed but transformed, then one might ask, can this be taught? Is there a place to acquire these skills? Is there a place where leadership is cultivated, and where the sheer effectiveness of a collaborative approach is honed, refined, and understood deeply so as to be applied to the most challenging situations one might face? The Master of Transformative Leadership Program is a rigorous four semester on-line program that unreservedly shows that the answer is yes.
