The Minor in Leadership Studies is designed to provide students with in-depth knowledge of leadership theory, skills, and experience through a rigorous and multi-disciplinary program of study. Students will complete the program by applying their knowledge and skills through a project based experiential learning course. The minor is currently comprised of three tracks – Business, Global Engineering Leadership & Public Policy, offered through the Institute for Leadership & Entrepreneurship at the Scheller College of Business, the College of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the School of Public Policy at the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts. Students apply for one of the three tracks, and upon acceptance, enter the program to begin a prescribed 15 credit hour course of study (Business / Public Policy) or 18 credit hour course of study (Global Engineering Leadership) while satisfying requirements for a bachelor's degree in their major.
