Remember when it was normal to work in the same job for 20+ years? That just isn’t our reality today.
When you don’t plant roots at an organization for the long-term, sometimes it can be challenging to emerge as the leader that you want to be. This is just one reason why a master of science in leadership is valuable.
By learning about organizational relationships, leadership models, project management, and change management, you’ll be able to serve as a leader wherever you land.
What Mark Jewell, an instructor in our master of science in leadership program, wants his students to take away from his courses is the ability to view the world through a different.
I challenge them to look at how they interact with others, not only in their personal lives but their professional lives, and realize that their perspective is but just one perspective.
Mark enjoys teaching at Granite State and is continually impressed by the diversity in the classroom.
Each student brings different expectations as far as what they want to get out of the program. Some are here because they are interested in expanding their careers and others are here to augment what they’re already doing.
