Many people who have earned a baccalaureate degree find themselves wanting to think more intentionally about how to work in and with organizations to advance professional and personal goals. Perhaps you are contemplating a change in career, wanting to add an emphasis to prior professional credentials and experiences, or you may realize that to really excel in your career choice, you need to acquire a greater understanding of how to lead and navigate organizations and how to build successful relations within and among organizations.
The Master of Arts in Leadership is designed to support these learning objectives. No matter what your specific career goals, organizational and personal leadership is a vital dimension for your success. In Truman’s program, your learning experience will be enhanced by sharing perspectives with a diverse group of traditional and nontraditional peer learners with a variety of academic and professional backgrounds.
