Accelerated Degree Completion

Organizational Leadership

 

The Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership provides
a foundational knowledge of a business environment with specific emphasis on leadership roles, as well as the skills and challenges that are inherent in any organizational structure. The curriculum in this degree program enables the student to better understand how organizations develop, to better articulate their own roles and responsibilities within an organizational construct, and to effectively address real-world business and leadership challenges in their current places of employment. As part of this program, students are required to complete in-depth Experiential Learning Projects (ELP) that emphasize a variety of business and organizational leadership applications as well as either newly identified career alternatives in business or other specific work-related projects.

Program Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the accelerated Bachelor of Science degree program in Organizational Leadership, and in addition to the outcomes of the Liberal Studies Degree Program, students will be able to:

  • Identify and articulate theories of business, management, and leadership through a variety of case studies.

  • Discuss how businesses operate from multiple perspectives, such as human resources, legal, and global.

  • Apply theories of business, management, and leadership to real-world situations.

  • Apply accounting principles to current business practices.

  • Describe laws and their implications that impact current business practices.

  • Articulate an understanding of current global issues in business organizations.

  • Demonstrate communication skills in group and interpersonal settings.

  • Define effective leadership by demonstrating the skills, knowledge, and competencies of effective leadership.

Uniquely Personal
Because every student is different, and brings varying amounts of prior learning credits and experience, your Program Plan will be unique to your own interests and needs – no two Program Plans are alike!  Therefore, scheduling an appointment with an Advisor in the Division of Continuing Adult and Professional Studies program is critical to both creating a plan toward degree completion and getting started. 

You can begin at the start of any semester, and you may apply up to 90 transfer credits into this 120 credit program, consistent with current policy, via college or university credit, documented prior learning, military credit or other methods.  You may have accumulated credit through your respective places of employment-credits that may be applied to your degree requirements.  Examples include certificates of program completion, military training documents, and professional licensures.  There is no guarantee of such credit until appropriate documents are evaluated in detail by the Division Dean and the Registrar.  For many students, the various ways to obtain credit enables further acceleration.  Advisors help to identify “next steps” to determine how many courses are needed and a timely plan for graduation, based on individual needs.
