A degree in Leadership studies is a fairly new, as of the last 60 years, academic discipline. The program focuses on the concept of leadership in an organizational context and a human development context. The evolution of the need for a degree program in leadership is the result of a new conceptual view on the business world that blends the social factors of sociology, anthropology, psychology, history and philosophy to subsidize the business elements of an organization with the humanitarian elements.

The modern leadership program will give graduates the formal academic education to provide a multi-faceted approach to management, organization and team building, while still providing the business foundation courses. The definition of ‘leadership’ can fit many ideas. Leadership can be; a process, it can be a personality trait, it can be a task or it can be an action. As of recently the concept of leadership has been viewed as an inherent trait, something that cannot be learned. The prowess to organize a group of people to achieve a common goal was a strategic combination of vision, values and business savvy.

Contemporary leadership programs in colleges and universities often place a leadership degree program in business schools, education school and psychology departments, due to the broad and dynamic subject matter involved in the programs curriculum. The intrinsic value future employers place on graduates of a leadership program will provide students the confidence and foundations to successfully lead and manage a goal oriented group of individuals.
