Palm Beach Atlantic University recently announced that it will introduce three new tracks -- Corporate Leadership, Non-Profit Leadership and Organizational Leadership -- in its Master of Science in Leadership degree program beginning this fall.
“According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of college graduates in the leadership segment is projected to grow faster than the national average for all occupations until the year 2024,” School of Leadership Dean Craig Domeck said. “This demand is attributed to the need for businesses, charities and organizations to use their resources more wisely as they navigate sweeping changes in healthcare, insurance, technology and human resources.”
The Master of Science in Leadership program
allows graduate students who are also working professionals to develop leadership
skills. It is a 36-credit program, which features nine core courses and three
additional track courses.
“I am now serving Lake Worth Christian School as superintendent, so a master’s degree in leadership is a good fit for my current role,” recent graduate Jim Harwood said. “I feel as though my career really took the direction it did because God showed himself to me during my time studying at PBA for my undergraduate degree in the late '90s and continued to guide me during these last two years in the graduate program. I received a great education and formed lasting relationships that have helped me, and will help me, as I continue to grow as a leader.”
