The Integrated Food Systems Leadership (IFSL) program is designed to help professionals interested in the food system build a deeper understanding of all components, while developing critical leadership skills.
Participants build the skills and leadership mindset needed to address real-world food system challenges. They learn to think more broadly and become more effective problem solvers within their organization and across disciplines — locally, regionally, and globally.
Cohorts start in September with applications due by July 15. Applications can take up to one month to submit all items.
To date, 100% of IFSL graduates and 70% of the current IFSL cohort have accelerated their careers. Many have told us that the IFSL program was crucial to their advancement.
The IFSL program is entirely online, flexible, and designed specifically to meet the needs of busy professionals that are balancing careers, families, and the shifting pandemic-related working environments. The program lasts 14-months with an average of 10 hours of learning time each week.
The IFSL graduate certificate program can be extended with additional coursework to earn a Masters degree in Applied Sciences Leadership. The IFSL program contributes about half of the requirements.
Scholarships are available.
