M.A. in Organization Leadership

While MBA programs cover management disciplines with emphasis on quantitative skills, here you learn and practice leadership skills including recognizing opportunities to lead, engaging and motivating individuals and groups, and how and why followers choose the people to lead them.  You gain a greater skill bank to leverage cultural diversity.  Strategies of leadership, conflict, negotiation, critical thinking, ethics, power, decision-making, change management, and how to manage information and technology, among other topics, are addressed.  

Organizational Effectiveness Certificate

The 16 credits required to earn this certificate are designed for the working professional who wants to sharpen their skills in a certain area of expertise.  In particular, the certificate will help you to become adept in your interpersonal and group skills and to lead teams and facilitate change at the organizational level.  Or you will learn a coaching process to lead change at the individual level with greater discipline and competence.
