The purpose of the Organizational Sciences program is to provide leadership training for students interested in a variety of purpose-driven organizations (including for-profit businesses, governmental organizations, nonprofit organizations, and public and private boards).

Some courses will have graduate sections.

Candidates are expected to show evidence of excellence in online teaching.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Excellent communication skills;
  • Ability to work collaboratively with colleagues in the home department, with those in cooperating units, and with stakeholders in students’ communities.
