Strategy and vision for entrepreneurs.

Leadership is about adapting to change, earning trust and gaining support, creating vision and making ethical decisions. The online Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (OL) equips you with an understanding of leadership principles and opportunities to further develop your leadership and problem-solving skills. This program complements almost every background, offering instruction in the complexities of leadership that can be applied in any field.

The OL program is an excellent alternative for those considering MBA programs, though it differs in several key ways. Whereas MBA programs primarily focus on organizational rules and procedures in a business structure, the OL program emphasizes entrepreneurship, vision and strategy, team building, motivation and empowering others to meet needs.

Year-round course offerings and full- and part-time options were designed with working professionals in mind, allowing you to earn your master’s without disrupting your career.
