The Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership (MAOL) program enables you to increase your ability to lead, as well as shows you how to help organizations enhance their overall leadership capacity. You will expand your 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. The MAOL program will help you turn your vision for a better tomorrow into a reality
You can complete the 100% online MAOL program in as little as two years. All courses are 16 weeks long in the fall and spring semesters and eight weeks long in the summer semesters. The MAOL program provides an applied approach to the study and practice of leadership.
You will learn from a team that is dedicated to your success. Most importantly, you can tailor the leadership degree program to meet your career interests by choosing one of three specialty tracks: organizational leadership, nonprofit and volunteer leadership, military, and government leadership.
The program includes four phases.
The MAOL program offers one of the most innovative completion options available in higher education. We call this option the Experiential Leadership Completion Program (ELCP). Many ELCP participants will find that this program provides the most significant leadership development experience of their careers.
