Leadership and Public Service Applied Skills
The Leadership and Public Service program is a master’s degree based on applied skills.
Public and private employers are looking for a workforce that is different from even 10 years ago. Past work environments emphasized stability, longevity, and content expertise; now the focus is on dynamism, innovation, and functional expertise. Employees can move quickly to the top, or they can move quickly across companies and careers.
The most valuable qualities of an employee (for the employee and the employer) are based in leadership. However, “86% of businesses worldwide say developing new leaders is their organization's #1 challenge—and only 15% are confident in their current leadership pipelines.” (Deloitte)
The Leadership and Public Service program will provide you with the skills to excel in your career aspirations.
