Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL)

with a Track in Organizational Transformation

NOW ENROLLING STUDENTS TO BEGIN IN JANUARY 2022!

Today’s leaders must possess effective observational, analytical, communication, and problem-solving skills to move increasingly complex organizations forward. Wilmington College’s Master of Organizational Leadership program with a Track in Organizational Transformation (MOL-OT) will deliver the leadership experience and expertise you need for the next step in your career.

The MOL-OT curriculum focuses on building leadership, interpersonal, and organizational skills, while also strengthening the emotional intelligence and critical thinking skills that students must use in their professional lives. Courses are research driven with a stress on independent learning at the graduate level.

The MOL program has a common core of courses, consisting of 15 semester hours. The core courses are designed to cover content that is vital to understanding organizations and business practices at the graduate level. Please refer to the Curriculum link for a full description of the MOL-OT courses.

In addition to the core courses, students pursue a MOL track. The Organizational Transformation (OT) track, consisting of another 18 semester hours, is the first MOL track to be offered on Wilmington College’s Cincinnati campus. Besides refining and developing the skills listed above, the OT track includes a mindfulness approach that is integrated across the track curriculum and that is intended to increase self-awareness and build the capacity for empathy, compassion, and ethical action. Refer to the Curriculum link for a full description of MOL courses.

The Immersive Learning Experience is the cornerstone of the MOL-OT program. In alignment with the values of Wilmington College, students are expected to engage with a social organization throughout four semesters in the program and contribute their expertise in developing plans that will assist the organization. Social justice organizations can include: (1) the external projects of for-profit companies engaged in and supporting community improvement or service projects, and (2) any not for profit that provides support for individuals or groups of individuals in overcoming obstacles in life. Given the intensity of the experience, students become involved with a social justice organization as soon as they begin the program.

The MOL–OT program is designed to be completed in four consecutive semesters with most courses being hybrid (that is, a rotation of one week online and one week in class). Some courses will be accelerated (8 weeks), some will be full-semester courses. All courses will meet only one night a week when face-to-face sessions are required. It is possible to complete the program as a part-time student as well.
