Leadership

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Leadership involves learning about the skills and abilities necessary for a person to lead a group, team, organization, or company. It includes studying a number of different leadership styles, as well as common traits that effective leaders possess, such as charisma and the ability to make decisions.
