Director's welcome

Dr Rob PepperWelcome to the Graduate Programs in Business and Leadership at Messiah College. Our programs are unique in that they focus on developing and refining both character and leadership competencies.  Our faculty is a diverse group of experienced leaders, scholars and educators who will take time to mentor you in your education, faith, and career. Our programs emphasize personal growth and are designed with the working professional in mind. With flexible start dates in an eight week online format, you can maintain your work-life balance while gaining skills and abilities that are in high demand. The programs also include numerous experiential exercises and field projects and you are encouraged to intentionally connect these to your work, your career, and your vocational needs.

In addition to the curricular design and outstanding faculty, you will be in classes with smart, experienced peers that come from a variety of backgrounds. This is intentional as we firmly believe that “iron sharpens iron.”  Leadership takes a toll on the individual, therefore this program intentionally includes peer mentoring as part of the leadership development and educational process. This is yet another way that we will prepare you to be a relevant influential leader.

All of us in the program are passionate about developing the next generation of leaders to be a faithful presence in business, church and society and we hope that you seriously consider joining us.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.
