Ed.D. in Executive Leadership
The Doctoral Program in Executive Leadership provides candidates with an opportunity to develop the critical leadership skills and knowledge that are required in today’s increasingly complex, diverse, and information-driven organizations.
This unique program in executive leadership was developed to provide an attractive and viable alternative to “traditional” doctoral programs in educational leadership.
Goals of the Ed.D. Program
As an alternative doctoral model, the program is designed to:
- Provide executives and senior managers with an advanced curriculum that focuses on relevant and current topics and issues in executive leadership
- Focus on the core leadership competencies, dispositions, and applied research that executives and senior managers need to be effective in various organization settings
- Provide opportunities for candidates to focus their dissertation on actual problems in their organization, making the dissertation relevant and practical, and thereby encouraging organizational support
- Provide candidates with access to a network of successful executives and organizations to support their intellectual, professional, and career development
