The purpose of the Master of Arts in Leadership program is to help professional people improve their leadership competence through enhanced commitment, capability, and effectiveness in five specialty areas: business, health, education, non-profit organizations, and Christian ministry.

The goal of the M.A. in Leadership program is to enable participants to:

  • Develop a personal philosophy of servant leadership, modeled on the life of Jesus Christ;
  • Understand leadership and its personal and corporate challenges in a world of shared power and multiple organization leadership levels;
  • Appreciate leadership as the establishment of vision that is expressed through service;
  • Acquire skills in the formation, direction, motivation, and evaluation of individual and team activities (negotiation, resolution, and positive use of conflict in living and employment circumstances, etc.);
  • Ensure better organization performance through strategic leading and commitment to financial accountability; and
  • Apply leadership principles in the place of employment and in other areas of life.

Participant performance is evaluated by the Trinity Western University grading policy.
