Featured Degree Program: Organizational Leadership

Today’s companies are looking for tomorrow’s leaders. CSU offers a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership to equip our students with the skills and expertise to succeed in the business marketplace.

“The organizational leadership degree programs at CSU are designed to develop leaders for prominent leadership positions in corporate, academic, government, and non-profit environments,” said CSU Chair of Organizational Leadership, Cynthia Ryder, Ph.D. “With the increasing number of retiring baby boomers, there is an urgent need to identify and develop corporate, education, and government leaders to take their place.”

Between 1998 and 2008, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (USBLS) determined that 22 million of the 25 million people leaving the labor force were baby boomers. That figure is projected to increase in the upcoming years.

These degree programs introduce students to the methods and skills necessary to maximize human capital in organizations, develop individual and interpersonal skills, enhance positive change, and foster lifelong learning and continuous growth. Subjects covered include organizational behavior, business ethics, team building, and creative thinking.

“Organizational Leadership is a popular degree program at many universities and a few of the numerous potential career opportunities include: Special Events Consultant, Human Resources Manager, Career Planner, Military Officer, Recreation Management, Corporate Trainer, Educational Administrative Coordinator, Non-Profit Management, Medical Office Manager, and Business Consultant,” Ryder said.
