Leadership Concentration

The Leadership in the Global Economy concentration within Global Studies is a new and interdisciplinary focus that allows students to combine an education in global economics with core humanities and leadership values.

Go Deeper

Rather than obtaining a traditional business or humanities degree, students will become cognizant of the interrelationship between specific regions in the world and how local cultures affect politics in a diverse and constantly changing landscape.

By focusing on one particular world region and becoming proficient in one language, students will attain a global outlook allowing them to thrive and master global leadership tasks in an interconnected world.


The Leadership in the Global Economy concentration can be pursued as part of a student's Global Studies degree, since meeting the concentration's requirements will also fulfill some of the general degree's. The concentration is an 18 credit hour program that will reinforce global cultural understanding.

The requirements are:

  • One accounting course
  • One retail course
  • Two higher level foreign language courses
  • Four concentration courses

To choose concentration courses, a student selects one course each from four of the following areas: Environmental Studies, Geography, Journalism, Management, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Library and Information Science, Social Work, and Women and Gender Studies.
