In a 2015 study with human resource professionals across eight countries, nearly half of participants indicated leadership was the hardest skill to find. The study also determined that while 40% of surveyed companies offered leadership development, only 15% of employees felt that the training prepared them for leadership positions.

Students who complete the degree will have knowledge in foundational leadership theories, complexity, ethics, critical thinking, communication, culture and diversity, decision-making, coaching and mentoring, and other areas related to leadership. This degree ensures that students have the appropriate skills to contribute as a leader in all aspects of society.
