Today’s global environment requires innovative leaders who can adapt to fast-changing environments and create solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. These leaders must be culturally aware, analytics-savvy and able to anticipate challenges. They must also have the skills to communicate with and influence people across cultures and continents. To respond to this need and develop a new generation of strong global leaders, Troy University has developed a one-of-a-kind, fully online Ph.D. in organizational leadership program: the Doctor of Philosophy in Global Leadership. If you want to lead businesses, organizations, universities or even government institutions, the TROY Ph.D. in global leadership equips you with a unique skill set and interdisciplinary knowledge to help you excel in your role, whether domestically or abroad.
At TROY, we are intentionally international, striving to offer a uniquely global doctorate
degree in leadership. We not only bring a worldwide focus to the coursework, but we
also put your focus on the world and help you develop international leadership skills
through first-hand experiences.
As part of your global leadership coursework, you’ll travel to a country outside of the United States to meet and learn from the leaders who are changing the world. You’ll gain direct experience confronting the challenges facing international organizations and a mentor, guide and coach who will help prepare you to succeed in the international marketplace.
To arrange the internship, you’ll work with a faculty advisor to identify an opportunity that aligns with your skill set and dissertation interests. Examples of the internship include shadowing a senior leader in a commercial firm or international organization; working on a project for a commercial firm, nonprofit or government agency; attending a faculty practicum seminar; or designing your own immersive experience (under the direction of your advisor).
When we think of leadership in businesses, corporations, government agencies and other types of organizations, it’s easy to assume there is a uniform, time-tested set of leadership skills needed to manage at the top and get the job done successfully.Read More
