The Organizational Leadership and Supervision program focuses on providing individuals with a competitive advantage when moving into leadership and supervisory roles in technology based organizations. The program investigates the rapidly changing and complex nature of leadership in organizations that use and rely on technology on a day to day basis. The OLS degree provides a long term, empowering approach to the practice of leading people rather than the short term, command and control approach to utilizing human resources. Students learn about leadership, the importance of organizational vision and values, developing human resources, and managing technological resources in corporate, government, or community organizations. Leadership skills in goal-setting, time management, verbal and visual communication, and leadership values and abilities are developed through relevant real world applications.
