OU Extended Campus Leadership Degree Receives a New Name

We are excited to announce that the OU Extended Campus leadership graduate program has a new name. Going forward, the Master of Arts in Administrative Leadership will be known as the Master of Arts with a Major in Organizational Leadership (MAOL). The program will continue to focus on the current trends in leadership, giving students the skills and experience they need to be competitive in the job market.

The MAOL program enables individuals to increase their ability to lead and help organizations enhance their overall leadership capacity by turning their vision into both personal and organizational transformation. Through the program’s applied approach to the study and practice of leadership, students will expand their self-awareness, learn how to improve the performance of individuals, teams and organizations, and gain knowledge about how to develop these vital leadership skills in others.

“A strong leader can motivate and inspire employees and promote growth and change within an organization,” said Paul Dyer, lead faculty member for the college’s organizational leadership programs. “We provide content that teaches students to assist organizations in increasing their overall leadership capacity.”

Students can tailor the organizational leadership master’s degree to meet their career interests by choosing one of three specialty tracks—organizational leadership, nonprofit and volunteer leadership, or government and military leadership. Each track will help students develop a variety of abilities, from enhancing individual, team and organizational effectiveness and driving and managing change to creating high-performance teams and building and changing organizational culture, and much more.

MAOL students learn from talented and experienced instructors who care about their success. They also interact with other students from all over the country and abroad and engage in lively online discussions highlighting the most current trends in leadership.
