Global leadership is a young multidisciplinary field of study that is exciting for both practitioners and scholars. It focuses on the globally minded, culturally intelligent, socially responsible individuals who lead transnational organizations in every sector of the global economy. It addresses followers as they define the global leader and share the global leader’s vision. Furthermore, global leadership examines organizational systems within complex external and internal environments where interaction between global leaders and followers takes place.
The purpose of the Ph.D. in Global Leadership is to prepare scholars for leadership roles in complex organizations in for-profit and not-for-profit sectors and higher education. These scholar leaders will understand their responsibilities and their roles as leaders in conserving, expanding, and transforming these organizations and in advancing the discipline of leadership and practice in the global society.
