Virtuous Leadership Concentration

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Available for all graduate business programs

The purpose of the concentration is to provide leaders with an understanding of running a business effectively while leveraging the morality-infused practices as described by Alexandre Havard. The concentration will integrate business concepts critical to these organizations including leadership development, magnanimity, morale courage, self-fulfillment, eudaimonia, and corporate social responsibility.

Upon successful completion of the Virtuous Leadership concentration, students will:

  • Master techniques to integrate magnanimity into effective business practices.

    “Magnanimity is the habit of striving for great things. Leaders are magnanimous in their dreams, their visions and their sense of mission; also in their capacity to challenge themselves and those around them. Fraternal humility is the habit of serving others. It means pulling rather than pushing, teaching rather than ordering about, inspiring rather than berating. Thus, leadership is less about displays of power than the empowerment of others. “
  • Gain mastery of techniques inclusive to morale courage in their personal leadership style.

    “The virtues of prudence (practical wisdom), courage, self-control and justice, which are mainly virtues of the mind and the will, constitute the foundations of leadership.”
