The Leadership Concentration (formerly called Management) develops the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to effectively lead complex multinational/multicultural organizations. Students from such diverse fields as engineering, IT, biotechnology, consulting, financial systems, health care and many others often choose this concentration as preparation for advancement into broader leadership roles. In consultation with the faculty adviser, students select from a wide variety of courses and develop a personalized leadership concentration best suited for their individual career aspirations.

Students with a Leadership Concentration are free to choose any four courses and are not limited to courses listed under a particular cluster(s).  From time to time additional courses not found on this list may be offered.  These courses will be found on the Registrar’s web site.
