McPherson, KansasCentral Christian College of Kansas is proud to announce the launch of its first graduate program: Master of Science in Strategic Leadership.

Today’s marketplace demands the presence of individuals who can provide effective strategic planning, guidance, and oversight. Built upon Central Christian’s unique Christ-centered, character-based outcomes, the Masters in Strategic Leadership degree seeks to enhance and refine the tactical skills needed for effective leadership. Unlike an MBA, the Master of Science in Strategic Leadership focuses both on people and processes, providing opportunities for immediate impact in the workplace. Ultimately, participants will be equipped with tools and resources to set a course toward transformative organizational leadership.

Designed to remove obstacles normally encountered when seeking graduate-level work, students will benefit from the flexibility and convenience of this 100% online, or blended self-paced program. Students are enrolled in one course every 6-weeks, for 18 months, providing the time and space needed to explore each subject, without exhausting demands on time and resources. Competitively priced and conveniently accessible, the launch of this new graduate program opens the door of opportunity to every individual seeking to enhance their value in the marketplace.

The program leverages the substantial resources currently utilized by the undergraduate online program, which was first launched in 2011. When asked about the development of the graduate offering, President of the College, Dr. Leonard Favara said,

The timing just seemed right for us. Over the past few years, we have advanced both in technology and resources. This leap to the graduate level is merely an expansion of the vision to provide a transformative educational experience to any person desiring to become a faithful steward of heart, mind, body, and soul. To me, that includes graduate students.

Reflecting on the current state of the College in the midst of the COVID crisis, Board of Trustees Chair, Dr. Gary Anderson shared,

This marks the beginning of a long-standing dream for many on campus, as well as the Board of Trustees. We are elated and so pleased that President Favara kept the vision alive and pressed forward to achieve the goal – what an accomplishment during this difficult and challenging time!

The program, which will include online and blended options, is slated to begin in spring 2021, which will include specific concentrations for Business Management, Criminal Justice, Healthcare Administration, Organizational Leadership, and Crises Management.
