Whether on the job, in the community, or at home, people with strong theoretical knowledge and practical experience in leadership are being called to put their skills to work.
Now there’s a convenient, unique, and accelerated degree program available from Michigan’s own leader in higher education: the 19-month leadership program at Grand Valley State University.
There is no other degree exactly like it in any other area university. It challenges what is and asks what could be. It encourages students to question, study, and understand the complexities of today’s professional world. It’s a different way of learning, and focuses on developing the skills leaders use and employers require.

"I would recommend it [liberal studies, leadership] to anybody who wants to have more of an input in their education, anybody who really wants to refine their skills. This program helps you develop the skills that you already possess. The faculty members in this program are really great at bringing it out of you. They helped me realize skills I already had, but didn't necessarily recognize."
