Master of Organizational Leadership
The MOL program is designed to present students with a framework for thinking about organizational systems and how each of these can be developed with quality and effectiveness. Our program is similar to an MBA but places greater emphasis on systems and the relationships between them. We offer flexibility, personal mentoring and support of a private Christian university with tuition rates comparable to state universities. The program can be completed in two years.
The program is aligned with the Baldrige Model for assessing effective organizations. As such, we have courses addressing each of the components of the model. We are practice oriented and require students to complete and present projects related to their organizations with high potential for making improvements within them.
Subsystems addressed within the organization include the following: •Develop a personal leadership philosophy that integrates biblical values and ethics and acquire the skills necessary to effectively lead the organization. •Understand the dynamics of global and multi-cultural environments on leadership and organizational behavior. •Demonstrate a practical understanding of organizations, cultures and teams from a systems perspective. •Develop knowledge and skills of strategic planning and change management that result in the capacity to take an initiative from planning through implementation stages. •Explain essential concepts of budgeting, financial management and risk management for organizational decision-making. •Identify and demonstrate effective approaches and skills in written and oral communication to support organizational leadership effectiveness. •Describe and demonstrate effective use of technology and processes for organizational feedback, assessment of organizational performance, problem-solving, opportunities for improvement and knowledge management. •Describe the values, concepts and behaviors found in high-performing organizations and demonstrate ability to assess organizational performance and identify opportunities for improvement. •Understand strategies for developing the organization and its workforce. •Understand factors necessary to create an effective customer and market focus.
