The Center for Leadership Education provides an array of programs designed to help students build a course of study that supports their educational and professional goals. Our undergraduate programs are open to all students on the Homewood campus (WSE and KSAS), as well as students from the Peabody Institute and the School of Public Health. Students from all disciplines take our classes, and our minors are compatible with every major.
CLE coursework and experiential learning opportunities make our students highly marketable to employers and graduate schools. In fact, many CLE alumni tell us how being involved with CLE helped secure internships and full-time positions. Even if they choose not to pursue a career in the private sector, having a background in the fundamentals of enterprise gives students an advantage, no matter what career they choose.
Our Master of Science in Engineering Management program recruits top engineering, science, and math graduates from across the globe and pairs their technical track of choice with a variety of courses in management, positioning students to innovate technically while building their professional acumen. Our Professional Development Program provides graduate students across the university with professionalization opportunities and practical knowledge in specialized areas including developing business plans, managing people, delivering professional presentations, working in interdisciplinary teams, and more.
