Graduate Studies - North Central University




North Central University’s Master of Arts in Strategic Leadership provides a model and a means to study, develop, and apply leadership essentials.  Effective leadership is vital for institutional success. Leaders must apply an ethically responsible vision, a sensitivity to complex personal and organizational problems, the ability to effectively find solutions consistent with their values and mission, the ability to inspire and motivate people toward shared goals and objectives, and a commitment to fulfill God’s plans and purposes. 


The Master of Arts in Strategic Leadership program develops effective Christian leaders for vital roles in businesses, churches, and other organizations through a theologically-informed, theoretically-grounded, and practically-applied curriculum.  NCU is actively pursuing its second accredited MA program and invite you to please stay tuned for further developments and updates.
