Welcome to the

John Wesley School of Leadership

Training 21st Century Leaders

There are thousands of books with the word “leader” in the title. Hundreds more are produced each year alongside articles and commentary.

The reason is simple – organizations, businesses, societies all need good leadership to successfully navigate in a highly uncertain environment.

The 21st century environment is characterized by disruption – caused by the mass movements of people, changing business practices, demographics, national and international conflicts, ideologies, and technology.

Here at PIU, we are committed to training leaders for today’s complex and challenging organizational environments. Under the instruction of PIU’s highly skilled and credentialed faculty, our students examine contemporary leadership themes and principles — relating them to varied organizational contexts and putting them into practice. Whether you are interested in an MA in Leadership or a PhD in Leadership, you will find the John Wesley School of Leadership to be a highly flexible and affordable program of study. Our program allows for an anywhere, anytime approach to leadership study.

The John Wesley School of Leadership at Piedmont International University offers concentrations in Organizational Management, Educational Administration, and Ministry Administration, and our students study subjects such as organizational change, conflict resolution, strategic planning, and emotional intelligence. Graduates from the John Wesley School of Leadership hold national and international positions in global organizations, military contexts, non-profits, health care, educational institutions, government agencies, churches, and para-church ministries.
