Undergraduate Organizational Leadership

The program prepares you for responsible leadership and managerial roles in a variety of organizational settings. You'll develop the conceptual and problem-solving skills that an effective leader needs to identify how behaviors and attitudes can be improved through recruitment practices, training programs and implementation of feedback systems. Completing this program will equip you with the skills, knowledge and values needed to advance your career and thrive in complex organizational management teams.

Lindsay-RommelfangerIt was a breath of fresh air. The professors always treated me as an adult and were very understanding that everyone has a busy life outside of school and that certain situations may occur which are out of your control. They are willing to work with you to ensure you don't fall behind.Lindsay Rommelfanger, BS-Org Behavior and Leadership
