The Ken Blanchard Companies – Bachelors and Masters Programs


Blanchard has partnered with the University of San Diego to offer an Executive Leadership masters’ program, and with Grand Canyon University, the United States' number-one online undergraduate institution, to create unique Bachelor of Science and Master of Business Administration degree programs.

Grand Canyon University


The Ken Blanchard Companies and Grand Canyon University have been partners in learning for more than five years. Through the Ken Blanchard College of Business, Blanchard has worked with the university to create an innovative program that combines face-to-face and online learning in a one-year eMBA program. In addition, Blanchard and the Ken Blanchard College of Business collaborate on course creation at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

The Ken Blanchard Executive MBA—This highly innovative program has been designed to combine Ken Blanchard’s renowned research on values-based leadership with the rigor of a challenging executive-level graduate business education

Unlike other Executive MBA programs, the Ken Blanchard EMBA begins and ends with leadership. The first module, ‘Leading Self’ provides an introspective look at the individual leader and uses a variety of proven self-assessment tools to assist student-executives in identifying areas for further leadership development. The journey continues with subsequent modules on ‘Leading Others’ at the team and business unit levels and ‘Leading Organizations’ at the strategic level. A lifetime of Ken Blanchard’s captivating work on leadership is integrated throughout the curriculum.

Additionally rather than teaching the business courses from the traditional functional perspective, the Ken Blanchard EMBA uses a unique cross-functional approach that focuses on the often conflicting interests of key stakeholder groups including customers, shareholders, employees, and communities. This unusual teaching approach enables students to develop the critical thinking skills necessary to make the right decisions that create value for customers, keep employees fully engaged, and ensure profitability and sustainability for shareholders.


  • The five main themes that thread throughout the program include:

  • Values Based Learning

  • Servant Leadership

  • Global-Mindedness

  • Being Both People and Results-Oriented

  • Innovation and Entrepreneurial Spirit
