Master of Organizational Leadership Details

We are not currently admitting students to this program, as we are working on a redesign.

Strong leaders start here.

With Clarke’s MOL program, you will gain practical leadership skills that can be applied immediately to your work environment. You will acquire the tools needed to lead teams in a highly competitive market. The MOL focuses on the collaborative dimension of leading people to achieve organizational success.

Prepare yourself to:

  • Engage in active learning and apply this knowledge outside of the classroom.
  • Investigate case scenarios for application of knowledge.
  • Utilize simulations to apply the concepts learned in the classroom.
  • Sharpen your leadership skills and gain strategic confidence.

Clarke offers a proven record of accomplishment with nearly 30 years of experience in offering graduate business education with personalized attention and instruction. We are proud to offer a quality education designed to enhance your value as an employee and your opportunity for career advancement.

The landscape of the 21st century workplace includes knowledge-based workers engaged in a fast-paced, ever-changing, globalized environment. This requires thoughtful, flexible, visionary leaders able to meet the demands and expectations of key stakeholders. The Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL) degree teaches students how to lead and produce an effective change in an organization through its most valuable resource: its human capital.

The MOL is for students either in or preparing for positions of leadership within their organizations. The MOL focuses on organizational leadership with emphasis on leading self and others in the modern world, effective teams, organizational behavior, executive presence, ethical behavior, and systems leadership. MOL graduates typically find themselves leading complex organizations and initiating change for organizational effectiveness. This program is for individuals from a broad base of educational backgrounds.

In addition, students who pursue the MOL at Clarke University gain a competitive advantage through three one-credit high-impact workshop-style courses offered in partnership with Dardis Communications. These courses focus on skills every leader needs, which include the following: professional presentation and communication skills, leadership presence, and powerful persuasion skills. The courses show you how to ‘step up’ with confidence, think quickly on your feet, and speak with purpose.

An MBA prepares you for management; the MOL prepares you for leadership. This may not be an ‘either-or’ decision; instead, it may be a ‘both-and’ decision as to which degree to pursue, depending on where you are in your career.
