 "I can honestly say the PhD in Leadership at Andrews has been the capstone educational experience of my life.... Lots of PhD Leadership programs help you learn more about leadership and gain research skills but Andrews actually helped me become a stronger leader and set me on a path for an informed Kingdom contribution (due to the inter-disciplinary aspect of the program: theology, business, and education) through a life of leadership."
