Master of Arts in Leadership (MAL)




Military leadership has been tested and refined since the beginning of armed conflict. Society has entrusted its safety and welfare to a select few. These men and women of the Armed Forces have proven themselves worthy of this distinction.

A soldier has a very distinct view of his peers in the sister services. Researching the various armed services' leadership training programs, has given clear indication that they are more alike then different.

All services have based their leadership training on the same essential points: levels of leadership, values, attributes, skills, actions, human dimensions, stress, leadership styles, and consequences. These points make up the Military Leadership Model. The purpose of this paper is to elaborate on this Military Leadership Model as it applies to those in uniform.
