Master of Science, Leadership and Management 4+1 Program for BS Organizational Management Students

The 4+1 Master of Science in Leadership & Manangement (MSLM) program will help undergraduate students prepare to be effective future leaders for all types of organizations. The program provides students with the experience to apply theory to real-world applications. Graduates leave with both the ability to apply organizational leadership theory and the problem-solving skills needed to manage an organization. During the student’s senior year in the undergraduate BS Organizational Management (BSOM) program, students will begin taking graduate MSLM courses, which will count toward both degrees, thereby, providing an accelerated path to completion.
