Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership

Leading Change.

Organizational Leadership is an accelerated hybrid program designed for adult learners who have an Associate of Science or Associate of Art degree or have successfully completed a minimum of 60 credit hours and meet UE general education requirements.

The OL program is designed to prepare students to assume management focused leadership positions at organizations in both the public and private sectors. It is a two-year hybrid program with classes meeting one night a week and online. Classes are condensed into a seven-week period.

Knowledge gained in the classroom is put to use through leadership practicums throughout the program. These hands-on, team based projects provide practical experiential learning and engagement in the community.

“I knew I had skills in the actual work that I do, but wanted to show that I also had leadership skills. This program helped me sharpen those skills and be more confident in portraying them. If you are wanting to advance your career and show leadership ability, this program will help build confidence and also sharpen any existing skills.” Allyson Niehaus, OL 2017 Graduate
