Most software engineering professional degree programs focus on solving today's problems with today's technologies. While those programs are needed to help practitioners cope with the changing landscape of software technology, they do not adequately address the need to cultivate future leaders in software engineering. In this paper we describe a Masters of Software Engineering program that is specifically oriented towards the education of ``agents of change''---practitioners who will be able to proactively infuse new science and technology into the software engineering profession.
