Union Institute & University’s Master of Science in Organizational Leadership is an online, 12-month degree program that prepares mid-level managers to advance in their careers.
“The Master’s in Organizational Leadership is designed to train current and emerging managers to be viable leaders. Companies and organizations need managers that are data-driven decision makers and results-oriented, as well as relational leaders,” said Dr. William Lax, Union Institute & University MSOL Program Director. “Today’s economy is complex and challenging. The MSOL prepares you to become a leader in a diverse and intercultural world, confront challenging organizational situations, understand the economic, political, and social factors creating them, and collaboratively devise advanced, equitable, and sustainable solutions.”
Mid-level managers will develop systemic and integrative thinking skills, increase their cultural competency and social justice awareness, and refine their practical leadership skills, including collaborative management, communication, discernment, problem-solving, decision making, and innovation while applying learning and development to a particular context.
As part of the degree program students draw upon their real world experiences, develop a foundation in ethics and justice and expand their professional networks. The Master of Science in Organizational Leadership is an online, 12 month, 3 semester program, with a part-time (16 month) option available. A GRE or GMAT is not required.
“The program is tailor made for the working professional and offers flexibility to accommodate an inflexible work schedule. I feel that my degree will open doors for me because of the professional and respected name that Union Institute & University carries.”
