Why Choose Organizational Leadership?

Organizational leadership is multidisciplinary, focused on the people side of organizations and managing others. An education in organizational leadership can provide you with a broad perspective to prepare for complex social, cultural, and professional issues that are sure to be encountered.

Organizational Leadership takes a hands-on approach to learning in the classroom. You will have the chance to participate in teamwork activities, work with nonprofit organizations and local schools, and learn from the experiences of fellow students, classmates, and community members. As a 2+2 program, credits earned in an associate degree program may transfer into this degree program, putting you on the fast track to completion.

Organizations have an increasing demand for those who have mastery in:

  • Interpersonal communication
  • Problem solving
  • Building effective teams
  • Critical thinking
  • Decision-making
  • Coaching and training
  • Conflict management


Graduates from the organizational leadership program have secured careers that include some of the following:

  • Marketing account manager
  • Business owner
  • Government/military positions
  • Public relations manager
  • Corporate recruiter
  • Sales account executive
  • Human resource specialist
  • Event planner
  • Pharmacy technician
  • Bank executive
