Organizational Leadership Major
Success in leadership positions, whether in management and/or a supervisory capacity in business, government, cultural institutions and nonprofit organizations is based largely upon the following competencies or skill sets: the ability to communicate effectively; familiarity with essential organizational functions (such as strategic planning, budgeting, information processing, legal issues, and public relations) broad-based learning and the critical thinking skills requisite for continual adaptability to changing responsibilities; and, increasingly, the ability to understand and participate with others in multiple task-groups.
The Organizational Leadership major is available to students in the School of Professional and Continuing
Studies on the Lincoln Center, Rose Hill and Westchester campuses. The courses will be offered on-site, online and in hybrid formats.
