What Students Are Saying

“I have always been fascinated with the diverse leadership styles that exist in our world and its many facets and intricacies. So, after reviewing the curriculum and class descriptions I felt the classes were exactly the learning experience I was seeking. Specifically, I was in search of a program that offered courses in the history of leadership and emotional intelligence.”
