MS in Leadership and Innovation (Hybrid)

Plan of Study

The MS in Leadership and Innovation (Hybrid) consists of four semesters (fall, spring, fall, spring) with three on-campus weekends each semester and ongoing faculty contact through online platforms. You can complete your degree in just 22 months while balancing your professional and personal commitments.

As you complete your first full semester, we'll work with you to establish your individual Plan of Study (POS). All students are required to have an approved Plan of Study in order to graduate from Purdue.

The Plan of Study serves as a contract between you, your advisory committee, and Purdue University’s Graduate School. Your POS is a blueprint for successful completion of your degree requirements. The plan must be approved adhering to department and Graduate School policies. We strongly encourage students to have an approved Plan of Study on file by the end of their first semester.

Refer to the table below and the POS Overview for assistance on what courses to take and when they’re offered. For a detailed description of each course please visit the Course Offerings page under the Student Resources tab.
