Leadership and Organizational Management MBA

An MBA or other master’s degree in leadership and organizational management is a graduate program with roots in business management and a heavy influence of human behavior. Leadership and organization degrees can be found in the form of master of science programs as well as master of business administration tracks. In both cases, the master degree program is used to develop existing leadership and organizational skills. Program coursework covers organizational structure in the workplace, and may teach students how to best create and maintain it in a professional setting. Through the course of study students are trained how assess systematic processes, and evaluate the need for change. They may also be taught how to effectively implement change and how to address it when it arises unexpectedly.

Career options after college might include upper level management occupations that oversee company operations in a given department or project. The master degree might also be used in nonprofit organizations, using acquired techniques from school to successfully organize and execute projects and fundraising under the mission of establishment. Consultancy could be another option to explore. In this field students could use their leadership abilities to help others learn how to be most effective, be it in a general sense, or project oriented.
