The Leadership Journey

Becoming a leader takes more than book knowledge. It requires personal exploration and growth.

That's why our program incorporates high-impact, reflective coursework with hands-on learning.

We start with students who are motivated to learn and provide them with the skills they need to become vital contributors at work. To learn more, download the course descriptions here and checkout the timeline and curriculum below.

Become a Team Player

Learn while doing. As you formulate ideas for your impact project, and begin to function as a leader on your project team, learn how to start well, continue well, and end with a bang! Team formation, creating a strong team culture, resolving accountability issues within your team, and thus performing to high expectations are the focus of this course.
