Majors & Programs
What is Pre-Organizational Leadership?
Organizational leadership provides students with skills and knowledge to perform as effective leaders within organizations and society. The program is an interdisciplinary program that combines a liberal arts education and selective business subjects with classes, guest lectures and seminars in leadership.
This program provides you with the first two years toward completion of a bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership.
Organizational leadership demands a range of personal qualities and skills. You must speak and write effectively. Globalization and the growing diversity of the workforce require that you work with or supervise people with various cultural backgrounds, levels of education and experience. You must be able to cope with conflicting points of view, function under pressure and demonstrate discretion, integrity, fair-mindedness and a persuasive, congenial personality.
With your bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership, you may pursue many different careers. Some of your opportunities for employment include the following:
- program director
- program manager
- department manager
- team leader
- program coordinator
As with other liberal arts programs, your degree in organizational leadership prepares you for further academic or professional study and for many different career options in the nonprofit and for-profit sectors. Graduates have pursued careers in business management, communications, nonprofit organizations, the Peace Corps and government. You may also choose to go on to law school, get your master's degree in a business administration program, or enter a graduate program in communication, psychology or other liberal arts discipline.
