Students in the Ph.D. in Global Leadership program are required to participate in on-campus residency weekends during enrollment. These events are held at the Fort Wayne, IN campus in the spring and fall of each year and require Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening attendance. Students are required to attend once per year.
These on-campus residency requirements are associated with critical points in the course progression to assure adequate progress is being made on development of research skills and critical analysis capabilities necessary to produce the dissertation. Residencies are structured to include seminars in current issues related to global leadership, lectures, guest speakers, and opportunities for students to interact with faculty concerning development of the qualifying paper and dissertation.
