In the Master of Science in Leadership (MSL) at American International College (AIC) students learn the concepts and theories of leadership, qualities that effective leaders possess, and the impact leaders have on their organizations. An overarching concept of the program is entrepreneurial leadership—thinking and acting in new ways to lead organizations to their highest potential.

Strategy and innovative concepts are used to explore and refine the skills needed to successfully lead an organization with the goal of enhancing each student’s individual effectiveness as a leader.

The MSL is a 33 credit program, comprised of 11 seven week courses, each blended to include onsite and online components. Areas of concentration include higher education leadership, designed to develop and enhance skills of future leaders in academia and executive leadership, for those who aspire to reach top leadership roles in corporate and not-for-profit environments.

“All of AIC’s MSL program is taught through the lens of leadership which sets this program apart,” says Kerry Barnes, Director of Graduate Admissions at AIC. “And, because it is cohort based, students enter and remain as a group until they graduate. This fosters a close, team-based working relationship between the participants. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be prepared to serve as highly effective entrepreneurial leaders in their respective organizations.”

The Chronicle of Higher Education named American International College one of the fastest growing colleges in the nation. In the private, non-profit master’s institutions categories, AIC placed among the top 20 colleges and universities in the country more than doubling its enrollment over a ten year span.
