The MacArthur School of Leadership will empower you to bring positive change to the world. You’ll take part in a multi-dimensional approach to learning, exploring how to effectively lead intellectually, spiritually and professionally both locally and globally.
The experience we promise is characterized by innovation and academic excellence. We intentionally keep classes small so your instructors can get to know you, and your future goals, on a more personal level. Our programs include:
Programs in the School of Leadership are designed to meet the needs of busy working professionals. We offer intensive, accelerated eight-week courses, as well as flexible scheduling through evening and online options.
Our B.S. in Organizational Leadership can be completed in 16 to 34 months, and can be completed online.
Our B.S. in Community is offered through evening courses, features an accelerated curriculum and is ideal for students who aspire to work in a counseling center.
Our M.S. in Leadership offers an accelerated curriculum with concentrations in corporate, non-profit and organizational leadership.
In the School of Leadership you’ll be mentored and guided by top-notch faculty whose scholarly credentials are matched by their professional accomplishments. Approximately 87 percent of faculty have earned the doctorate in their field. And they are committed Christians who draw from decades of real-world experience in fields ranging from business, leadership and management to organizational development, education, English, religion and writing.
We empower graduates to make the most of their leadership potential by identifying their unique gifts and using them to create positive change in the world. And our exceptional location will position you to forge meaningful connections with Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations and government agencies through internships that often lead to full-time positions after program completion.
