Master of Organizational Leadership

Organizational Leadership Program Design

The theme of servant leadership is the backdrop for the Master of Organizational Leadership degree. By offering a graduate degree with a focus on leadership and service, Trevecca endeavors to send out professionals who will not simply manage organizations but who will transform those institutions through the power of the Holy Spirit at work in them to effect positive change.

Professionals working in nonprofit organizations, government agencies, or community-based institutions will further enhance their leadership competencies through this interdisciplinary degree designed to apply leadership principles to real-world situations. Learners in this program will examine the art and skill of strategic decision making and problem solving within the political and cultural context of an organization. Working in smaller collaborative learning teams will provide learners the opportunity to utilize technology to test team building and communication skills, a dynamic that mirrors today’s real-world meetings, conferences, and project management. Students will be provided an opportunity to participate in an orientation to the learning management system or course augmentation when they begin the program.

The format and schedule of the Master of Organizational Leadership is designed for working professionals or lifelong learners who may not have access to a local university or who desire to further their education via a Christian institution of higher education.
