The Strategy, Leadership and Analytics Minor prepares students to be leaders who can manage the dynamics of rapidly changing marketplaces and adapt strategically and creatively for future careers.
As an interdisciplinary minor, and through a curriculum divided into three components, it incorporates basic economic planning courses with classes throughout the arts, humanities and social sciences as well as specially designed SLAM courses focusing on leadership, ethics, law, public relations, marketing, and strategy.
