This program has assisted me in becoming a global leader and learner. It has taught me key concepts, theories, and practical skills that I could implement in any leadership role that I should take. The courses, assignments and professors have assisted in growing my emotional intelligence, culturally sensitivity, personal and professional confidence and my ability to lead diverse teams. Furthermore, the design, and implementation of the course work and capstone ensured that I became a critical thinker and gave me firsthand knowledge and experience of being a successful leader who can communicate effectively, resolve conflict and create strategic plans for those I lead and serve. The perfect program for the working professional!

“This program has given me the tools to be a true leader. It has made me understand the value of teamwork and working together. All of the professors in the program are open and honest and are willing to help at every step of the way. They want to see you graduate and succeed. It was the best decision that I have ever made."

“An investment in knowledge is priceless. I did the full time accelerated option for the Masters of Organizational Leadership and Communication while working full time and being a full time single mother to a 3 year old.”
Kathleen Ross, M.S. May, 2020
I was concerned about enrolling in an online program after being out of school for over 20 years, and how I would be able to balance working full time, being a mom and full time student. I have learned a tremendous amount in this program and it has been an amazing experience. I have been able to make connections to leadership theories, organizational changes, strategic planning, team building and have been able to put them into practice at my job. This program has helped me develop and implement skills to be a successful leader in the non-profit sector. I highly recommend this program to people who want to be well rounded, dynamic leaders.
Cassandra Clemente, M.S. May 2020
This program has been an amazing experience for me being a full time student and also working two part time jobs. I have been able to juggle my jobs and school and still have time for myself. At times, of course, it can get stressful but this program is more than manageable. The teachers, especially the director of this program, actually care about the students and want to see everyone succeed which is one of my favorite things about the program. I also have enjoyed seeing how much I have learned about what a real leader is and have acquired a lot of knowledge that I believe will assist me in climbing my way up the ladder within my career. The program can be done in one year, while you are working full time.
