Whitney, Gary; Dalton, Thomas M.
American Journal of Business Education, v1 n1 p9-18 2008
The University of San Diego, School of Business Administration (non-profit university) and the Ken Blanchard Companies (for profit management consulting company) teamed to create the Master of Science in Executive Leadership at USD. Fusing a traditional non-profit university faculty and staff with a for-profit consulting company created a plethora of financial, cultural, and marketing issues. These issues were solved through a creative and collaborative process. Ultimately the new master's degree thrived both financially, and developed into a popular program for upwardly mobile business executives.
