about the program
At MNU, the ideas of valuing people and working together fit perfectly with our call to love and serve others. All organizations function with a variety of people and personalities, so it takes strong people skills and leadership to successfully steer organizations. As a Leadership and Management major you’ll hone these skills choosing a focus in a particular area such as business, communication, Christian education, ministry, or intercultural studies.

You will receive a broad education covering the major functional areas of business. The Leadership and Management major will help you prepare for a career in business by providing knowledge, skills, and experience desired by all types of employers. This degree will also prepare you for graduate study in management, law, or other business specialties. You will gain a strong understanding of leadership through courses in:

  • Strategy
  • Business law
  • Management
  • Marketing

So, what’s required to be successful in Leadership and Management? A willingness to work with and lead people to accomplish organizational goals. Real-world experience helps. That’s where our internship placements come in. And you’ll have a chance to join our chapter of The National Society of Leadership Success for great networking opportunities.

For some, college can be just about gaining knowledge so one can get the best job and make the most money possible after graduation. We’ve changed that at MNU. ‘Passion to Serve’ is not just one of our tag lines. We’re about learning so that we can serve others.
