Master of Organizational Leadership
The Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL) program engages current and emerging leaders in learning and applying leadership theory utilizing a multidisciplinary approach that synthesizes knowledge from management science, social sciences, humanities, research science, communication arts, and Franciscan values.
Franciscan values are a kay part of the MOL program: As a community of learning, students work and learn together within their cohorts maintaining high standards of scholarship. Community of reverence recognizes that each MOL student brings unique gifts to the program, and that other students and faculty respect and nurture those gifts into more effective leadership behavior. As a community of service, MOL students are actively encouraged to seek out opportunities to give back to their communities while studying leadership principles. MOL students often design their capstone projects with non-profit and service organizations as a way to serve the greater N.W. Ohio community.
Liberal arts are also emphasized in the MOL program, consistent with Lourdes University history and mission, in the sense of liberating the mind so leaders can make sense of their world independent of the influences of others when appropriate.
The MOL program seeks to enhance in its students critical thinking, higher-order reasoning, and ethical virtue as leaders. Consistent with these goals, leadership science is emphasized rather than the exhortations about leadership so often found in the popular press. Principles of leadership, scientifically developed, are the starting point for leadership studies. Their application to real-world leadership challenges forms the core of academic work in the program.
