Why Choose the Organizational Leadership Program?

There is a surging interest in leadership within organizations today. With the rapid rate of change in our global economy, people in managerial and leadership roles must become more adaptive and innovative. They must learn how to be more confident and competent leaders. Research shows that leadership can be learned, fostered, developed, and improved.

The Organizational Leadership minor prepares emerging leaders to face challenges across all career fields.

Organizational Leadership, which has grown into one of Wright State's largest degree programs, combines understanding oneself as a leader, understanding leading within the organization, and understanding the external environment.

The minor is designed for students desiring a broad academic background in preparation for supervisory and management careers in private, public, and nonprofit sectors.

Add this minor to your existing major and prepare to be an effective leader in whatever career you choose!
