The Global Leadership specialization provides students with insight into effective leadership practices for the international environment, particularly in developing countries. Through their coursework, students explore sustainability frameworks and models, techniques that leaders use to build capacity for community change, and strategies for effective and timely decision making in uncertain conditions. Students also engage in the development of a strategic plan for an international public or nonprofit organization or for a U.S. organization with an international focus.
