The School of Applied Leadership provides working professionals with training and educational opportunities, available entirely online.

In 2011, CityU began offering students a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Leadership to help executives, educators, and administrators develop advanced skills in strategic analysis, change management, international education and organizational development. Students can focus in educational leadership (P-12), higher education, nonprofit leadership, organizational leadership or create a specialized study. Graduates from this program will be well-equipped to assume senior leadership positions in organizations, universities, or public school systems.

The School of Applied Leadership also has an MS in Leadership and Management program and a  Master of Education in Adult Education.  Both programs offer students online options to get a degree that can help them advance in their career or to start a new one.
