Cheryl Harrison, Ed.D., Executive Director, explains. “This degree is unique in that we take what the student brings to the table – experience, knowledge, leadership skills – and we help them develop a leadership plan based on their specific strengths and areas of improvement. As the student learns and grows, we help them adjust their development plan to suit their leadership goals.”

Manhattan College’s online M.S. in Organizational Leadership is a student-focused, experience-based program with an accelerated curriculum that is built on proven leadership theory and practical application.

The program consists of 33 credit hours of coursework designed to provide hands-on experience for organizational leaders. Comprised of nine core leadership courses and two elective courses, the program is designed to immerse students in relevant, applicable knowledge and skills to immediately build their expertise. Finally, the student will complete a capstone project in which they put their knowledge and skills into action by working with a real-world business.
