Leadership and business strategy gives you a competitive advantage and accelerates your career, no matter your major. You will gain the skills most desired by top companies—leadership, teamwork, and strategic problem solving. The program culminates in two internship-level consulting experiences where you solve a strategic business problem for two different companies. Your learning directly affects people’s lives, making your internships relevant, meaningful and engaging. Through these experiences, you will grow personally and professionally among some of the hardest working, most ambitious students at WMU.
Leadership and business strategy can only be taken with a second major or as a minor. This is because leadership and strategy are skills, not specific business functions. Students in the program come from nearly every major, including sales and business marketing, product design and innovation, finance, marketing, computer information systems, integrated supply management and more.
Beyond the classroom
As a leadership and business strategy student at WMU, you will gain valuable networking and professional opportunities outside the classroom through special events, activities and social functions.
After you graduate
WMU graduates with degrees in leadership and business strategy will be prepared with skills and experiences that complement and enrich their chosen field of study. Those pursuing a degree in leadership and business strategy are especially well prepared for careers in consulting, private equity, investment banking and roles in strategy.
