The Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership prepares graduates to lead, inspire, and guide organizations and colleagues in current and future professional work and personal development. Grounded in Muhlenberg’s expertise in interdisciplinary study and adult education, the program integrates the practice of leadership with academic study to build the skills that leaders need in leadership disciplines and in personal and organizational competencies, entrepreneurship, innovation, interprofessionalism, and the essential technical and market skills.
In addition to the academic requirements, including a four-year degree in any discipline, applicants for the Masters in Organizational Leadership will typically have a minimum of two years’ full-time work experience and a basic foundation in accounting and finance, such as financial accounting or principles-level economics. College seniors or recent graduates may meet the work requirement through appropriate professional work experiences through internships, summer work, externships, and projects that may be sufficient.
Students complete the MOL in two years, taking two course units per semester in fall, spring and summer terms for a total of 12 course units.
Courses are taught in a blended model, combining online learning with face-to-face meetings, service-learning, and self-study.
