Innovative interdisciplinary program seeks to create agents of transformational change

Recent financial scandals and environmental disasters have highlighted the need for leaders with strong ethical values who can design strategies for growth that merge with goals for the common good. In conjunction with its newly redesigned website for online programs, Creighton University is offering a new doctoral program in leadership built on the University’s Jesuit, Catholic foundations of self-knowledge, social justice, and service to others. The Doctor of Education (Ed.D) in Leadership program will be offered in the online format only.

Taught by Creighton faculty from the arts and sciences, business, pharmacy and health professions, medicine and law, the online Doctor of Education in Leadership program is designed to transform students into thoughtful stewards who will work toward changes and initiatives that benefit not only their organizations but also our society as a whole. Students will study self-reflection as a tool for growth and the concept of leadership as rooted in faith, justice, and ethics. Students will also study more traditional topics such as effective communication techniques, integrating new technology, and applying organizational and change theory to the workplace.

The Ed.D. in Leadership is an applied degree that has value across a wide variety of industries and is particularly useful for emerging leaders in business, education, and health care. This flexible program in leadership offers students the opportunity to transform their coursework into action through a personalized Professional Development Plan and a practicum.
