Strategic Leadership Training

Program Summary

The College of Business & Analytics’ Strategic Leadership Training (SLT) is an 8-week program designed to help College of Business & Analytics students refine their leadership skills and abilities. This initiative is built to help aid students in their pursuit of becoming a leader in their lives right now, but also becoming a leader in their future career paths. The goal of the Strategic Leadership Training is to give students the tools they need to aid them in concentrating on their leadership skills. Through a series of hands-on assessments, guest speakers, and leadership materials, students will receive 8-weeks of development on what type of leader they are, what qualities of a leader they exhibit, and how they can continue to further develop their skills even after the conclusion of this program. 

Objectives of the Program

  • Aid students in learning their specific leadership style and skill sets
  • Give students in the program a chance to network with other SIU Alums who are current leaders in different companies
  • Work collaboratively with other students to help develop leadership styles
  • Foster a supportive and inclusive environment that supports learning
  • Help equip students with the tools they will need to be leaders in their current, and future, career path
