Critical Thinking for Today's Professionals

The most effective leaders are the guiding hand that leads an organization to success. They set direction, guide followers toward an inspiring vision, and help people visualize what might be achieved if their efforts are combined. But there is more than one way to lead an organization. The OU Extended Campus Bachelor of Arts in Administrative Leadership explores different leadership styles to help current and future leaders develop the strategies necessary to inspire growth and change within their organization.

What to Expect

When you are admitted into the program, you will be assigned an advisor who creates an individualized graduation plan. This plan will help organize and identify the courses you need for your degree.

Degree Topics:

  • Organizational Leadership
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Ethics
  • Marketing
  • Cultural Diversity

Manageable Accelerated Courses

All undergraduate courses in this program are eight weeks long. Most students choose to take four courses (or 12 credit hours) a semester; two courses the first half of the semester and two courses the second half of the semester. The number of credit hours you take each semester should be discussed with your advisor and reflective of your personal and work schedules—these courses are fast paced and intensive.

Depending on how many credit hours you transfer from another institution, along with the number of courses you take each semester, this program can be completed in as little as 18 months. The majority of students complete the program in two to three years.


Access program content and contribute to class discussions on your own schedule and at your own pace each week.
