In this concentration, the College of Business and Leadership has put together the essentials to create a concentration that can add value to nearly any workplace.

Perhaps the most attractive aspect of this program is the flexibility in terms of its distance presentation. All of the courses for this MLS concentration are available through a distance education solution making it easier than ever to get that Master's degree you need. More graduate level students find that getting education at their own pace and on their own time is much more convenient. If this describes you, then this program was built with you in mind.
