Cameron announces Master of Science in Organizational Leadership program

Cameron University has added a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL) to its graduate curriculum, effective for the Fall 2011 semester. This program, which comes under the umbrella of Cameron’s School of Business, was recently approved for addition at CU by the Oklahoma State Board of Regents.

“I am excited at the prospect of bringing additional Organizational Leadership learning opportunities to our students and to Southwest Oklahoma,” says Dr. John McArthur, Vice President for Academic Affairs. “Graduate courses will be delivered by Cameron University faculty and area practitioners in order to provide a balance of perspectives and experiences for our students as they seek to advance their careers.”

The Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL) courses are available in both online and face-to-face formats. The program is designed to prepare men and women to be leaders in military, governmental, entrepreneurial and corporate ventures, as well as further graduate study. The program addresses subjects at an advanced level including organizational behavior, leadership and knowledge management, training and development and human resource issues within organizations, strategic knowledge and change management, synthesis and communication of information gleaned from data sets for decision-making purposes, and global policies and strategies.

The program is designed to enable students to advance professionally by understanding more clearly what is happening in organizations and to develop practices that empower organizations to be successful. Potential career choices include organizational development, knowledge management, human resources management, information technology, business process design, organizational change management, and project management.

The MSOL program requires a total of 33 semester credit hours, including 18 hours of core classes, 12 hours of electives/concentration, and Capstone experience. Admissions requirements are based on upon a combination of undergraduate grade point averages and Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores.

The MSOL becomes the sixth master’s degree program that Cameron offers, joining the Master of Business Administration, Master of Education, Master of Education in Reading, Master of Science in Behavioral Sciences and Master of Science in Educational Leadership.
