We will be serving three professional populations: executives, consultants, and educators.
Leadership: We will be serving executives in organizations who are in the “C-Suite” or aspiring to higher levels in their organizations (private, public and non-profit sectors). This includes executives in government, non-profit and community-based organizations.
Consulting: In addition, we will be serving those who are working in large and boutique consulting firms. The consulting firms span different industries and settings focused on collaboration, innovation and change.
Higher Education: In the education arena, our graduates can pursue opportunities to teach in college courses as faculty, lectures and adjuncts positions serving as a primary or secondary career or as complementary work.
A combination of these three options is a viable pathway for our students. Often, there is interest in leveraging the degree with one's current employer as well as having it serve for a later transition into other pursuits.
