Leadership development programs
Technology keeps changing the way we work.
Learn to navigate and lead others through the change.
The qualities that make a leader haven't changed, but as organizations become increasingly technical, good leaders need to reconsider how they make decisions and motivate teams, while reflecting on their own ideas about success amid digital transformation.
Questions like these are a specialty at Stevens School of Business. We combine our heritage as an engineering university with research and teaching that's rooted in real-world applications and informed by our close ties to industry. That lets us offer leadership development programs that have helped professionals in aerospace, energy, defense, healthcare and other industries understand their unique leadership styles — giving organizations the tools to build effective leadership from within.
