If you want impact, sometimes you have to build it yourself. Gordon College offers the only graduate leadership program in New England that leverages the strengths of a Christian liberal arts tradition.
The new one-year entrepreneurship track within the Master of Arts in Leadership is designed to equip you to tackle big challenges. In business and nonprofit settings alike, organization leaders are challenged to thoughtfully address the needs of multiple stakeholders, craft strategies and innovate change, and lead in a way that redeems and sustains with the hope of the gospel. This program assumes you are motivated to build the change you wish to see in the world, yet seek the business acumen to sustain new and existing ventures toward a lasting impact.
The entrepreneurship track is open to students participating in the Gordon Plus program.
