The Master’s Program in Leadership and Management of Organizations is jointly organized with “Development Associates International” (DAI), an American organization with extensive experience in adult education.
It responds to the crying lack of Christian leaders sufficiently equipped to ensure the take-off of our religious and non-religious organizations, our businesses and, more generally, our countries.
The Master of Leadership program is therefore given the mission of equipping learners essential tools for the transformation of their character and their practices in order to become agents of transformation of their socio-professional environment.
It is based on the principle of servant leader who, by ensuring that the objectives of the organization are achieved, is concerned with the full development of the potential of the people he leads.
The Master’s Program in Leadership and Management of Organizations is open to a multidisciplinary public, local and sub-regional. Laureates must have at least a Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) and at least two years of professional experience.
MODALITIES OF TEACHING
The program extends over three years, six semesters, and is based on a hybrid teaching method characterized by face-to-face sessions (5 to 10 days at the beginning of each semester) and periods of practical work, from a distance , individually or in groups, to be delivered according to a predetermined schedule.
Each semester, students take two to three courses. The interactive teaching method is favored in order to involve, as much as possible, students in achieving the objectives of each course. Examinations of courses seen during a semester are organized at the beginning of the following semester before starting a new series of courses.
