The Doctorate in Strategic Leadership degree program is designed for a broad range of mid- and senior-career professionals. Eligibility requires a strong academic/professional background and well-articulated objectives.
Strategic Leadership doctoral students possess a wide range of personal experiences and professional backgrounds holding positions as individual professionals and in corporations, public institutions, governmental and nonprofit organizations. As the program values a community with broad academic and professional diversity, previous education may include any or more of the following examples: business, education, engineering, human resources, organizational science, or an earned academic/professional degree in a domain such as but not limited to law, healthcare/medicine and design. While students must have completed at least seven years of full-time, management-level, professional work, many have more.
Admission to the program requires completion of an accredited graduate degree in any discipline, earning in each academic degree at least a 3.0 GPA. Standardized tests such as the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) are not required. International applicants should make sure that their undergraduate degree is the equivalent of a four-year degree in the US, and if their previous undergraduate and graduate degrees were taught in a language other than English, they submit their English Language Proficiency scores.
