Two Paths to Your Degree

Develop as a leader by gaining theoretical and practical experience. Ensure optimal performance of individuals, groups and organizations. Learn how to build a culture of performance. Get started by determining which degree is for you.

This path might be the best fit for you if:

  • You hold a two-year applied degree from a Wisconsin technical college campus or any other regionally-accredited college awarding the two-year degree.

Determine an Area of Focus

Choose an accelerated emphasis.

With Organizational Leadership as your degree goal, you will take a blend of core and emphasis courses. Two of the emphases are accelerated. Self-directed is our most popular emphasis because it's the most flexible. An emphasis in Rising Leadership provides students with the knowledge, perspectives and skills to help them become leaders in the workplace.
