Program Information

Degrees Offered:

M.S.- Leadership and Management, Concentrations in Nonprofit Management, Organizational Development, and Human Resource Management.

Format: Campus

Program Description:

This program emphasizes the human dimensions of management. It is applicable where skills in change management, leadership, and group dynamics are demanded for professional effectiveness. The core classes develop an essential managerial knowledge base; students then customize the balance of the coursework with either electives from one focused concentration or a more generalized program of study, selecting from any of three concentrations (ie Human Resource Management, Nonprofit Management, or Organizational Development). The capstone course, built upon three required research courses, results in the research, writing, and presentation of either a thesis or an applied research project. The MSLM program is a networked and mutually supportive community of learners. New students are required to participate in an orientation.
