The online Applied Leadership program will prepare students for leadership positions in a wide range of organizations and career fields with a focus on the practice of innovative and effective leadership. The program will provide an AAS to BAS path for ASU’s community college partnerships at the Polytechnic campus and for ASU Online students. Students who have earned AAS degrees in areas including, but not limited to, fire science, environmental technology, machine shop technology and welding technology, will learn and apply the leadership skills necessary to become effective leaders in those vocational environments with career opportunities as team leaders, floor managers and shift captains.
The concentration in applied leadership will share coursework with the BA program in organizational studies but will focus less on theoretical aspects of leadership and more on applied leadership skills. It uses transdisciplinary methods that prepare students to become leaders in a variety of organizations. Students develop skills and knowledge that leaders need to solve problems, communicate effectively, assess programs, lead projects and manage resources.
