Are you motivated to bring transformational change to your organization and community? Are you looking to take your career to the next level?
Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) has launched a new online Master’s of Creative Leadership program, which will welcome its first cohort in summer 2022. With a focus on leading-edge organizational practices, the program cultivates empathetic, adaptive leaders who have the courage to ask bold questions, take educated risks, embrace diverse ideas, and collaborate with others around a shared purpose.
“This powerful graduate program will foster a creative journey of imagining, action, and reflection, preparing creative leaders to embrace ambiguity and imagine wholly new possibilities that are too often thwarted by conventional leadership paradigms,” said Diane Ragsdale, Director of the MA in Creative Leadership and Scholar and Faculty in Creative Leadership. “Different from a traditional MBA or Executive Leadership Program, it will educate students to challenge current structures of financial and social inequality and traditional hierarchical modes of leadership. Students will learn new forms and methods of leadership that embrace the whole person and a diversity of experience.”
Whether your background is in non-profits, cultural organizations, corporations, start-ups, government sectors, or other fields, you will learn how to lead more effectively within a dynamic, complex world. The online format, which incorporates residential weeks at the beginning and end of the program, provides maximum flexibility and accessibility while emphasizing the importance of building a strong network of peers in each cohort.
The Master’s in Creative Leadership complements MCAD’s existing graduate programs, which include Master of Fine Arts in Visual Arts, Master of Arts in Graphic and Web Design, and Master of Arts in Sustainable Design.
