Share Article

Beginning with the January 13 Fastrac session, Trident will offer an Organizational Leadership concentration as part of its Associate of Science in Professional Studies program.

Beginning with the January 13 Fastrac session, students in Trident University International’s (Trident) Associate of Science in Professional Studies program are able to enroll in the new Organizational Leadership (ASPS-OL) concentration.

Students entering this program will be required to have already earned a professional certificate or diploma, equivalent to at least 12 semester hours of transferrable college credit or documented military training as defined by Trident’s transfer policy.

“Learners from both civilian and military backgrounds stand to benefit with the Organizational Leadership concentration in our ASPS program,” states Dr. Lisa Mohanty, Dean, University College. “The coursework is tailored to provide students with the skills needed for success in a variety of professional situations.”

Students in the ASPS-OL will have the opportunity to master the use of technological tools in the business setting, develop their own leadership philosophy, use quantitative data and reasoning to address contemporary issues, and apply ethical decision making through relevant case studies.

Like Trident’s other associate-level programs, the ASPS in Organizational Leadership is designed to stack into higher level degrees. Graduates have the ability to transfer 60 completed credits into select bachelor’s programs. Additionally, completion of the ASPS-OL satisfies two course requirements of the Bachelor of Science in Leadership program – Introduction to Ethics (ETH 101) and Management Principles (MGT 280).

Enrollment is now open for the Associate of Science in Professional Studies program, Organizational Leadership concentration.
