Course Description

A student interested in becoming a leader needs to bridge the gap between school and the workplace. The Professional Leadership Program (PLP) was designed to help selected juniors and seniors begin this transition.

Since the professional world has become more technical, industry needs new leaders who can create solutions to the world's pressing problems. The PLP will help students succeed in this dynamic environment by moving beyond the limits of the traditional classroom.

The Professional Leadership Program fosters an awareness of the critical intersection between technology and people; how the use of one affects the performance of the others.

The PLP will help strengthen the student's leadership skills and, at the same time, teach them to leverage those skills as a potential leader in the business world.

  1. Assess their own professional strengths and interests
  2. Explore and develop their ability to engage and motivate others
  3. Learn to function in the evolving context in which a leader operates; leader/follower/facilitator
The skills developed as a participant in the PLP combined with the strong technical base they are building will help the student more effectively transition into the new workplace.
