What is the Master of Science in Management and Leadership?

The Master of Science in Management and Leadership degree program is designed for current and aspiring leaders in a variety of organizations. This program focuses on key areas of management integrated with the best leadership practices. Unlike a traditional MBA that often includes a broad knowledge from a variety of business disciplines, the MSML at SWU covers the necessary subjects for you to lead teams and organizations effectively and build alliances from a Christ-centered perspective that is characteristic of all the programs offered by SWU. Lessons and concepts from the classroom can be immediately applied in workplaces and organizations.

You will discover a clear perception of management ethics based on Christian principles and the ability to use collaborative techniques in project development and completion. The program focuses on Christian servant leadership principles, the management of tangible and intangible resources within various organizational cultures and how to effectively achieve organizational goals and objectives.
