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 classes no more than at a time in intensive, six-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.

Who This Executive MBA Program Is For

The MBA-LDR is for working professionals who hold a bachelor’s degree. However, we do not require a minimum amount of full-time work experience to be accepted into the program. We prefer applicants with official transcripts showing a 3.0 or higher GPA in the last 60 credits of bachelor degree study.

Admissions requirements, transfer credit guidelines and graduate requirements are outlined in our
