Preparing Leaders for Global Challenges
The Organizational Leadership Program provides superior educational opportunities that increase leadership effectiveness and career success in complex organizational environments.
Learning Outcomes for Organizational Leadership
Graduates of the Organizational Leadership Program are able to:
1. Define and describe leadership-related terminology and concepts.
2. Solve complex leadership problems using appropriate tools and techniques.
3. Formulate leadership and not-for-profit organization policies and strategies and evaluate their effectiveness.
4. Integrate global considerations in leadership decisions.
5. Work effectively in team environments.
6. Demonstrate appropriate habits, behaviors and attitudes in leadership situations.
Both the public and the private sectors demand competent leadership for their increasingly complex organizations. Change is constant, and corporate boardrooms, public agencies, and government offices are looking for individuals who can provide an effective, constructive force for their organizations.
This program integrates the study of effective leadership to provide students with a broad perspective on the challenges and opportunities related to leadership. The program is designed to strengthen students’ abilities to create a compelling vision, translate that vision into action, and lead others in creating new ventures or in revitalizing existing ones. In short, the program is designed to create a new generation of leaders—characterized by passion, integrity and competence.
Organizational leadership enhances students’ potential for leadership positions in careers such as public management, community service, health promotion, law, and human resource management.
Organizational Leadership majors are not eligible to earn the Business Management minor.
