The Bachelor of Science in Global Leadership and Management prepares students for leadership and management positions in a variety of organizational settings, private and public, domestic and international. The program provides an alternative path of study for the liberally educated business professional seeking practical skills and strategies for successful management in a global business environment.

The program also provides critical analysis of historical and social forces that influence leadership and organizations, and it addresses complex questions from different intellectual perspectives in order to broaden business education.

Additionally, the program enables students to examine the dynamic between culture and successful business practice, both at home and abroad, and it provides the opportunity to study in greater depth the culture of a particular geographic area associated with a student's personal and professional interests. A capstone course blends the program's multidisciplinary course work with students' professional experience to help them produce their own integrated and practical strategy for global leadership development.
