Reshaping the Future One Organization at a Time

Designed for senior leaders seeking a higher level of leadership learning, the Master of Science in Executive Leadership program provides an advanced level of leadership theory and application that address the specific challenges these senior leaders regularly face. The program recognizes the dynamic and fluid environment in which today’s leaders operate and focuses on providing tools for enhancing their ability to leverage human capacity for strategic results, while addressing complex leadership challenges with character, integrity and distinction. The curriculum is values-based and emphasizes the importance of strategic communications and emotional intelligence as they are recognized as critical threads that are woven throughout all leadership crucibles.

Focusing on our values-based leadership taxonomy, the Norwich University Master of Science in Executive Leadership program develops leadership character through the dimensions of Leading Others and Leading in Service; leadership integrity through the dimensions of Leading the Self and Leading in Service; and leadership distinction through the results achieved in Leading Organizations, as theory is translated into practice every day.
