MBA — Leadership Concentration

Position yourself to build productive teams, develop solid strategies and nurture a winning workplace culture with Averett’s Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Leadership (MBA-LDR). Online or on campus, you’ll learn effective leadership skills for the 21st century.

Goals and Course Topics

Leadership skills needed for today’s global, cross-cultural business environment are different than just a few years ago. You must grasp theoretical concepts and be able to apply them in real time – even as conditions shift around you. The MBA-LDR helps prepare you for the next step in your leadership career.


The online leadership MBA program covers the same advanced-level marketing, quantitative analysis, accounting and finance topics as the main-track MBA. Specialized leadership courses, taken online, include:

  • Identifying overlaps and differences between leadership and management
  • Leading in a global economy
  • Effective decision-making
  • Forming, directing and resolving problems within teams

The executive leadership program culminates in a capstone project that allows you to demonstrate your mastery of the materials. You will develop a research project or case study addressing leadership issues in your workplace or in business at large.


The MBA-LDR program is ideal if you want to advance your career without putting it on hold. Designed for accelerated completion, you’ll take one class at a time in intensive, seven-week blocks. Whether you choose to attend class online or on campus, you’ll take specialized leadership courses online. Small classes allow productive discussions and personal attention from your instructor.
