MS in Organizational Leadership - Human Resource Leadership Track

Hiring, retaining and rewarding a competent workforce are critical to the success of an organization. In today's complex business environment, human resource executives must understand the careful balance that needs to exist between corporate imperatives and the capabilities of staff to effectively accomplish what is in the organization's best interest. With a leadership core that calls for introspection as well as external environmental review, students in this track focus on the special challenges of the human resources field relating to staffing, rewards systems and employee development.

MS in Organizational Leadership - Non-Profit/Public Service Leadership Track

The need for capable leaders in the nonprofit and public management domains has never been greater. Shrinking state governments, fundraising challenges, regulatory reform and the ever-present growing need for services and support add up to an environment where individuals who can see the big picture and understand the bottom line are critical to organizations that have the needs of others at their core. Students who choose this track have the opportunity to build a foundation of knowledge that can be applied to successful careers.
