Program Details

Eastern University’s Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership is intended for students who want to enhance their understanding of and lead strategic change and renewal in organizations. Students develop skills in strategy and develop the ability to diagnose organizational needs, dynamics, and opportunities for growth.

The curriculum draws on Judeo-Christian values and ethics broadly speaking and challenges students to develop and apply critical thinking and collaboration skills to work with stakeholders to design and lead planned organizational change. Students learn to identify the costs and consequences of planned change as well as develop a solid foundation in business practice.

The major in organizational leadership aims to give students the skills and knowledge to be effective members of organizations through the application of systems theory to project management. The program gives students a holistic view of organizations and structures so students may understand the interrelation of leadership, organizational structure, culture, and processes and how these affect performance. The intensive course of study consists of a significant online component and offers students the flexibility to choose to complete their capstone research with for-profit, non-profit, or governmental organizations.

The bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership requires a minimum of 121 credits. Three types of courses comprise the program: Organizational leadership courses in the major, general education, and elective courses. Students develop the knowledge and skills to add value to an organization in three major areas: self-management, team leadership, and organizational change.

The program is best suited for students who wish to enhance their level of engagement with organizations. Individuals who are currently working in a management or leadership capacity will reap the maximum benefit of the curriculum because course concepts can be directly applied to current experience. The program is purposefully broad in order to enable students to apply their education in a variety of contexts inside and outside the traditional for-profit business world.
