Master of Science in Leadership - Joint Degree Programs

MBA MSLthumbnailMBA/MSL

The joint degree Master of Business Administration/Master of Science in Leadership program is specifically designed to integrate key elements from both existing programs to provide a degree option for students. This joint degree program leads to the awarding of one master's degree with study in two related disciplines. The primary focus of most existing MBA programs is to provide the student with an overall understanding of the key functional areas of an organization with a heavy emphasis on systems and quantitative approaches. As such, most MBA programs do not provide the student with an adequate understanding of the human behavior-leadership side of an organization. On the other hand, students focusing on the behavioral-leadership side of an organization can benefit from an enhanced understanding and appreciation of the key functional areas of organizations. This joint degree program is designed to provide the student with the best of both worlds, i.e., a solid background in the key functional areas of an organization, coupled with a major focus on effective leadership and change management knowledge and skill.

mhamsl imageMHA/MSL

The joint degree Master of Health Administration/Master of Science in Leadership program incorporates an efficient combination of the most significant aspects of the single degree Master of Health Administration and Master of Science in Leadership programs. The course of study culminates with neither the Master of Health Administration nor the Master of Science in Leadership; rather, the MHA/MSL is an intensive single degree program. The program is intended primarily for clinicians and healthcare managers whose career paths require advanced competencies in qualitative and quantitative aspects of management. In addition to providing functional knowledge in the key managerial, finance, legal and ethical areas of the healthcare enterprise, it will provide the latest knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage others and to successfully implement change initiatives. In so doing, the individual will be better prepared for leadership in the rapidly changing and extraordinarily complex health service environment of the 21st Century.
