Online Graduate Certificate in Strategic Leadership

The Certificate in Strategic Leadership is designed for students interested in the international contexts that shape the behavior of states and non-state actors and the formulation and history of strategic developments and geopolitical concerns influencing military planning and execution. Students explore topics such as defense policies of nations dealing with Europe and Asia after the enormous changes following the fall of the Soviet state and decision-making skills of leaders past and present. In addition, future strategic leadership is examined in light of technological change and the information age, non-state military threats, rogue regimes, and clashes of culture between regions.
