Program Overview

The Management and Organizational Leadership (MOL) major prepares students for the challenging task of both managing, and leading. Specifically, MOL students acquire skills in planning and budgeting, and in establishing a direction for the future; students learn how to recruit, hire and appropriately deploy human resources, and how to align human capital with strategic objectives; students gain competency in monitoring work processes and developing fair compensation strategies, and in motivating and inspiring others to go above and beyond expectations; finally, MOL students gain skills in instilling order and predictability in the workplace, and in leading change and ensuring long-term organizational sustainability.

Beyond these core managerial and leadership skills, MOL students gain specialized skills in an area of interest to them by pursuing one (or more) of the MOL major tracks. There are four tracks: Organizational Sustainability and Resiliency, Human Resource Management, Business Communication, and Non-Profit and Public Management. Importantly, our tracks are highly interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from within and without the Collage of Business and Public Administration. Further, coursework in the tracks is both academic, and experiential; this is important, because management and leadership skills are learned both through classroom instruction and via practical experience.

The Management and Organizational Leadership major prepares students to succeed in private, public and non-profit organizations. In addition, MOL students are exposed to the issues and challenges of managing and leading organizations in a global economy. Issues of diversity and inclusion, ethics in work organizations, and organizational sustainability are core to the MOL curriculum.
