Student Learning Outcomes
The Organizational Leadership degree (OL) is a diverse, compressed program that is designed to address the needs of varied learners including: mid-career organizational members who are seeking to equip themselves to advance their opportunities for advancement and less work-experienced learners who have an interest in developing the foundational organizational tools, knowledge and personal skills necessary for organizational success.
