Leadership Doctoral Degrees

Pave the way for a more just world with a leadership doctorate

Do you want to affect lasting and meaningful change in your community, workplace and beyond? A doctoral degree in leadership from Creighton University can strengthen your skills through practical experience, extend your network with talented peers and alumni and support your journey with expert faculty guidance.

Creighton’s leadership programs are shaped with Jesuit ideals such as academic excellence, respect for human dignity and a faith that does justice. This means you’ll gain the skills to lead both compassionately and effectively.

Interdisciplinary Experiences

“Our doctoral program in leadership is interdisciplinary by design, so we encourage students from a wide range of backgrounds to join us. They bring such varied experiences to the table that inform discussions around how we as leaders can think differently. How can we think with a Jesuit lens in mind to improve our places of work and communities?”

–Leah Georges, PhD | Associate Professor and Program Director, Graduate School


Many of our doctoral degrees offer flexibility, reliability and customization opportunities. Our Doctor of Education in Interdisciplinary Leadership, for example, is held mainly online and is bookended with two on-campus residences. 

All of our doctoral programs offer top-quality academic immersion with opportunities to work with nationally recognized faculty, and our research footprint spans the globe.
