A message from Dr. Coyne-Gilbert

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our MSOL program.

Unlike other graduate leadership programs, we don’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach to education. Our MSOL degree is unique because it recognizes that everyone comes to the classroom with different experiences and knowledge to share. As program director, it is my privilege to help create a collaborative environment where we can tell our stories and learn from one another. Through partnerships with thought leaders and experts in the field, this program will give you the skills you need to make a positive impact in organizational culture, communication, and talent and performance management.

I can’t wait to see what you bring to the classroom!
With warmest regards,
Sandi Coyne, MBA DM
