New Leadership Course for Freshmen

Starting in the fall of 2014, first-year Nichols students will begin to identify and develop their leadership skills through a new course: Learning to Lead.

Through this course, students will develop their own personal leadership style. The course includes an optional Spring Break trip to London that will expose students to business practices from international and intercultural perspectives. Students in this course will also learn from guest lecturers, a film series, and a number of collaborative, leadership-based projects.

Leadership skills are vital to success in any business. That’s why Nichols encourages the leadership potential in every student here through experiential learning, hands-on opportunities, and individualized mentoring.

“Today’s successful business leaders must have strong communication and leadership skills,” says Luanne Westerling, associate dean of business and chair of the business communication program. “Our mission is to develop business leaders for the future. This new leadership course and developing program support that mission.”
