Master of Organizational Leadership
Matt Dwyer, M.B.A., Director
The Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL) is a program for adult learners designed to enhance professional leadership skills of business owners, managers, supervisors, and other persons in comparable positions in governmental, nonprofit, and community-based organizations. The MOL focuses on providing learners with a variety of human relations, conceptual, and technical skills to prepare these individuals to successfully fulfill the planning, communicating, problem-solving, and decision-making activities of their professional positions.
Courses in the MOL will require learners to apply theories and/or models to specific problems and issues or change initiatives in their organizations. Emphasis will also be placed on the development and continuous improvement of the learners’ communication skills through speeches and presentations, papers and essays, and journal-portfolios, in which learners assess their own growth and development of leadership skills. Collaborative learning team projects will involve the study of specific leadership issues, with the expected outcome of proposing solutions to effectively address the issues or better facilitate a change initiative.
