Master of Management and Leadership

Campbellsville University’s Master of Management and Leadership degree (MML) provides future Christian leaders with all-important skills in ethics, creativity, strategic planning, customer service, and other key elements. The MML program is intended for graduates with a bachelor’s degree, as well as working professionals who would like to advance their leadership careers. Many institutions offer a master’s in management or a master’s in leadership, but here at Campbellsville, we believe the two go hand in hand.

Having a master’s degree with an emphasis in leadership and management will expand a graduate’s job opportunities. Although Campbellsville’s MML curriculum teaches a wide range of skills that are necessary for strong leadership, the program is broad enough that graduates can enter many professions. For example, graduates who choose a calling in education may find a position as a principal or school board member. Meanwhile, those who decide to join the healthcare industry may become executives for a large company. In both cases and many others, a masters in leadership will help you develop the confidence and skills to lead from the front, with a masters in management being crucial for learning how to guide those you are responsible for and fostering a great working relationship to get the most from your team.

Admission to the MML program requires a bachelor’s degree with a sufficient grade point average from an accredited college or university, as well as an acceptable GRE or GMAT score. International applicants must also pass an English as a Second Language (ESL) test if English is not their primary language.

Unlike many of Campbellsville’s graduate degrees, the MML program is a fully online curriculum. Comprised of a 30-hour semester program broken into five eight-week sessions, an MML can be obtained in as little as 10 months or as long as two years, depending on a student’s pace. If students choose to complete the degree in under a year, they can enroll in two classes per session. Courses in Team Dynamics, Negotiation and Conflict, and Leadership are just a few of the diverse core requirements.

Our business school’s MML program is comprised of a remarkable group of full-time and adjunct faculty, including Dr. Bill Adams (the advisor for MML students) and Mrs. Jennifer Graham (an admissions officer and the dean’s assistant). For those who seek a unique program that spans Christian studies, communications, and service, we invite you to learn more about the Master of Management and Leadership.
