Northwest University MA in Leadership Studies prepares graduate students for higher levels of responsible leadership. Our students learn how to lead so they can make a difference in the organizations that they serve.

Graduates with a MA in Leadership Studies will be able to:

  • Discuss the central features of foundational leadership theories as they apply to organizational settings
  • Evaluate effective leadership strategies as they relate to positively influencing organizational culture.
  • Analyze the applicability of organizational change approaches to various institutional settings.
  • Develop a strategy of self-development and self-leadership.
  • Formulate personal ethical standards to guide decision making.

Academic Progress

Students whose academic histories reflect a GPA below 2.7 (“B” level) may be admitted to the program on academic probation. Students may also be placed on probation if their GPA falls below 3.0. Students are given one academic term to show improvement and to raise their GPA to at least 3.0, at which point they are removed from probationary status. If the student’s GPA has been below 3.0 for two or more terms, he or she is placed on academic suspension (disqualification). Students must earn at least a 3.0 overall grade point average to graduate.
