Master of ScienceOrganizational Leadership
Why Choose Our Program?
The Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL) degree blends business,
communication, and social sciences, with an emphasis on management and leadership.
Our MSOL program is an alternative to the traditional Master of Business Administration
(MBA), with a key difference — Organizational leadership foregoes some of the intense
quantitative studies of economics and finance in favor of human resources and leadership
theory. The MSOL degree has been called "the business degree for non-business majors,"
as it is well-suited to skilled professionals who want to develop their management
knowledge and abilities.
- Is 30 credit hours
- Begins every 8 weeks
- Is offered on full-time or part-time tracks
- Offers FLEX classes
- Can be combined with a Master of Science in Applied Business Analytics.
