Whether you're interested in a career change, want to gain more recognition at work, or want to achieve this degree for personal reasons — this MSOL degree program is right for you!
Become a valued leader in your organization
With a large gap in skillset, organizations need people like you who are going to make a positive impact in organizational culture, communication, and talent and performance management. Alongside your peers, you'll learn the secrets to becoming an effective and committed leader. With coursework in data-driven decision-making, ethics in the workplace, innovation and strategy, negotiating and conflict response, and more, you'll become a well-rounded leader that companies will not take for granted.
Join an inclusive program designed for working professionals
Our MSOL program can be completed part-time in as few as 20 months in a fully online or hybrid online/on-campus format. Even better, you can apply into the program at any time, start classes in the fall or spring, and study year-round.
Our MSOL program is structured in a cohort-model, meaning you will take the journey to achieving your MSOL degree with the same classmates from start to finish. Our MSOL classes encompass individuals from all industries, which allows for strong class discussions from various points of view.
Two ways to earn your MSOL degree
Online classesAs you know, taking classes fully online can be a huge time saver and perfect for your busy schedule. No matter what class format you chose, online class work doesn't mean you'll miss out on rich class dialogue. Through our interactive online discussion boards, you, your professors, and your peers will engage remotely to discuss and debate class material.
Hybrid (online/on-campus) classesMany students enjoy our hybrid class format, which offers the best of both worlds — both online assignments and on-campus responsibilities. We know our students have busy lives so we've designed our MSOL program to be offered in accelerated 7½-week sessions with a 15 week capstone. With this program option, you only need to come onto campus once a week and do online work at home on your own time.
Take the journey with us
We're completely invested in the success of our students and we don't expect you to take the journey alone. You will have many supports and resources available when you need them, including career coaches, writing tutors, and committed faculty. You'll be amongst a culture of leaders in-training. Not only will you uncover strengths you may not know you have but you'll also break down barriers that may have held you back in the past.
Make an investment in your future
This is not a typical master's degree program, it's a life-changing experience. That's why it's important that you have the financial resources available to see your education through to completion. Our dedicated team of financial aid advisors can help make earning your MSOL degree a reality. No one wants to stress about time and money — so make sure you look into your eligibility for grants and scholarships to help fund your MSOL degree tuition.
