Exceeding Your Career Aspirations

Imagine a graduate program that prepares you to excel as a public leader.

Brookings Executive Education’s Master of Science in Leadership (MSL) program helps you achieve — and often exceed — your career aspirations. You acquire tools to re-engineer outdated processes, reinforce employee commitment, reaffirm agency values and redefine performance.

In other words, the program enables you to transform your organization.

Building ECQ competencies

Think of the MSL curriculum as a springboard to the Senior Executive Service or a senior-level position at your agency. Courses focus on the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s Executive Core Qualifications, a solid framework for professional advancement.

Documenting return on investment

You are required to write a five- to seven-page paper for each MSL course you take. In these written assessments, you demonstrate how you reduced class concepts to practice and document the results you delivered for your agency. The STAR (Stop, Think, Act, Reflect) model serves as the foundation for class papers. Advanced by Brookings Executive Education, the model improves your learning and performance outcomes.

“The MSL curriculum focuses on the immediate application of class content. Written assessments from our graduate students confirm that our models and methods save the government money, streamline agency operations and build employee commitment.” – Mary Ellen Joyce, associate dean and executive director, Brookings Executive Education
