Program Description:
Students will have the unique opportunity of traveling to France to attend an International Leadership Seminar at IAE Lyon that attracts leaders in industry and education from around the world.  Seminar professors in past years have hailed from all over Europe, Asia, the Middle East, North and South America, Australia, and New Zealand.  Along with graduate students at IAE Lyon, WKU students select from and fully participate in a series of several day seminars that cover a broad range of management and leadership topics.  Co-leaders CLyon, Franceapps and Norman meet with students to discuss seminar topics that align with their professional and research interests congruent with the Educational Leadership Doctoral Program.  The co-leaders also coordinate meetings between WKU students and international instructors to encourage possible future international research opportunities or other related international experiences.
