What better way to prepare for leadership than to jump right in? Wilkes University offers you that chance with the Jay S. Sidhu School of Business and Leadership.

The Sidhu School provides transfer students seeking a bachelor’s degree with a hands-on business education that emphasizes leadership and management. Our expert faculty will engage you in lively lectures that delve into business tactics and theories, taking you beyond the classroom to create experiences that hone strategic thinking, emotional intelligence and leadership skills. They nurture authentic leadership and ethical business practice as they develop the soft skills businesses require, like teamwork, communications and analysis.

The Personal and Professional Development series, unique to Wilkes Sidhu School students, will engage you in a process of discovery and development. You'll explore knowledge, values, learning styles and competencies as you lead by doing. After learning about yourself and finding your strengths and weaknesses, the class will explore professional skills that can add to your career development. These courses include resume writing and interview skills and also include practical advice on email correspondence, social events with coworkers, and other situations young professionals often find themselves facing.
