In preparing the next generation of business professionals, educators need to take seriously the responsibility of empowering students with tools to assist them in their pursuits. One area of interest is leadership. There is an increase in demand for colleges and universities to develop leadership skills in students. Organizations value leadership skills in the workplace and they expect that colleges and universities will educate students in the area of leadership and provide them with necessary leadership skills. Despite the broad horizon of leadership for helping to develop future leaders, it may be crucial for educators to explore the idea of student gender differences within leadership. The purpose of this study is two-fold with respect to leadership. First the researches will explore the differences of leadership perceptions related to a student's gender. Secondly, the researchers will discuss the implications for educators, administrators, and researchers. Findings, conclusions, and recommendations will be presented.
