Clemson named a Best College for Future Leaders by TIME

Clemson University, ranked No. 84 nationally, has been named a Best College for Future Leaders by TIME Magazine. The Dean's Global Leadership Program (DGLP), Leadership Signature Program (LSP) and Thomas F. Chapman Leadership Scholars Program in the Wilbur O. and Ann Powers College of Business are all designed to elevate the college as a premier destination for business education.

  • Thomas F. Chapman Leadership Scholars Program

    The Thomas F. Chapman Leadership Scholars Program, founded in 2009 through Tom and Karen Chapman gifts, offers a distinctive three-year experience for select first-year students who show leadership potential and nurture those qualities throughout their Clemson career while supporting the college's mission to develop leadership abilities in its students.

  • Leadership Signature Program

    The Leadership Signature Program (LSP) offers a distinctive Leadership Certificate. Comprised of 12 undergraduate credits, the certificate combines traditional leadership-focused courses with a unique multi-semester, progressive leadership practicum, allowing students to develop their leadership capabilities and contribute to the development of others.

  • Dean's Global Leadership Program

    The DGLP is designed to be completed in as little as one and a half years or stretched over multiple years and features core courses such as Global Business Negotiations and Global Leadership Lessons. In addition, students engage in a range of experiences, including at least one International Business Perspectives course, two credits of leadership practicums and a Global Experience. The program distinguishes itself by focusing not on specific business majors but on nurturing skills and knowledge essential for leadership across various professions, fostering critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity and collaboration, which are crucial 21st-century skills.
