Leadership Studies

Find Your Path to Leadership in Any Setting

Leaders, it’s been said, are revealed, not born. True leaders do more than issue orders, have a vision, or make a plan—they prepare and they pitch in. They invigorate solutions, elevate others, and chart the road to success. They are the essential engine that makes teams, departments, and even whole organizations set goals and achieve them.

At the College of Continuing and Professional Studies (CCAPS), we’re here to help build leaders. That’s why we offer the programs you need to develop the skills you need to take charge in the workplace and in your career. Let us show you what it takes to advance your career in a multitude of settings—the government sector, nonprofit agencies, research centers, international organizations, multinational corporations, and more.
