Learn through courses and hands-on experiences

Improve your people skills to effectively interact and lead in various situations in any industry. These are the "people skills" that organizations are seeking to manage change, build diverse and equitable environments, improve performance, and navigate ever-changing workplaces.

Learn to utilize an evidence-based decision-making process for an organization, its employees, and the culture. Data-driven decisions provide clearer objectives and goals, and come with less risk for you and the organization. In your capstone project, you will research and find solutions to a problem you have chosen that aligns with your profession. 

During the program, you will interview a respected leader from an industry that aligns with your career goals and interests. Gain insight and valued expertise on the leadership practices and theories that do and don't work within organizations.

The MSL program utilizes a cohort format with two start dates during the calendar year. Being a student in a cohort provides you with more opportunities to learn, collaborate, and network. The 2024 cohorts are scheduled to start in January and June.
