Learn about Benedictine’s doctoral programs in values-driven leadership … on your laptop

September 3, 2014

lobbyBusiness, health and education leaders who believe that success and values are not contradictory can check out Benedictine University's Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) programs in Values-Driven Leadership without leaving their home or office.

Benedictine University's Center for Values-Driven Leadership (CVDL) will host an Online Open House at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 18, for all executives interested in learning more about its doctoral programs. The event will provide prospective students an opportunity to question faculty, current students and graduates about the program.

Established in 2008, the CVDL at Benedictine University offers research, education and outreach opportunities to help business leaders forge new paths to profitability. It is a gathering place where top executives, entrepreneurs and thought leaders come together to innovate at the forefront of values-driven business practice.

The CVDL launched the first-of-its-kind doctoral program specifically designed for senior executives in 2011 with 22 students. The program offers a unique combination of research, theory, practice, and action-based learning to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to lead strategically at the intersection of business and society.

The program is designed to be completed in three years and is tailored to meet the exacting standards and demanding schedules of senior leaders who work full-time. More event details and registration can be found at cvdl.org/onlineopenhouse. After registering, you will receive a link allowing you to join the open house by logging into webinar software on the day of the event.
