Doctoral Degree in Organizational Leadership
• Offered online-blended
• A three-year, post-master’s program offered in a unique format tailored to the needs of busy working professionals. Students take just one or two courses at a time and progress through the program in a “cohort” fashion (i.e., with the same group of fellow students in each of their classes for the duration of the program).
• Curriculum includes coursework in leadership, research, ethics, interpersonal dynamics, and a range of electives to support each student’s unique career goals—preparing graduates to apply the principles of psychology and leadership theory in a broad range of settings, to more effectively lead individuals and organizations to success.
• Students engage in two brief residencies (roughly three and a half days each) at our Chicago campus—providing an opportunity for face-to-face interaction and networking with fellow students from around the globe who bring a wealth of diverse leadership experiences and perspectives. At the first residency, which occurs during year one of the program, students meet with their personal faculty mentor and engage in focused seminars aimed at helping them formulate their dissertation topics and prepare for the research process. At the second residency which takes place in year three, students focus on completing their dissertations and associated processes.
• Graduates are able to select, implement, and manage appropriate leadership methodologies to meet individual, group and organizational needs in non-profit, for-profit, and pastoral settings.
