Cedar Crest College Offers a New MBA Program With a Focus on Women’s Leadership

Cedar Crest College, a selective liberal arts educational institution for women in Allentown, Pennsylvania, is introducing a new MBA program with a focus on women’s leadership. This new focus will prepare students to navigate gender-related challenges in the workplace. Courses will address systematic challenges to gender equity in the workplace, including wage gaps, broken advancement paths, assertiveness, representation, and more.

The program will retain its emphasis on strategic leadership concepts and its graduate portfolio model. Students in the program are able to tailor their degrees directly to their personal goals and interests. Designed to be completed in as few as 12 months, the program is available completely online or on-campus, and students can switch between those options whenever they choose.

“Women have been gaining ground in recent years, but there are still additional hurdles that aspiring women leaders face in the workplace, including securing promotions through what’s known as a ‘leaky pipeline’ to top positions,” says Michael C. Zalot, graduate programs director and assistant professor of business at Cedar Crest College.

“Women who aspire to leadership roles,” Dr. Zalot added, “and male allies looking to improve gender equity in the workplace can benefit from leadership training that not only focuses on the traditional MBA areas of strategically positioning businesses and organizations in a competitive market but also examines the challenges and opportunities for individual leaders as well.”
