Why study organizational leadership at Northwestern?

The Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL) degree is available completely online or in a blended learning format taught both on campus and online. This degree can be completed in as little as 18 - 22 months. There is also an option for you to earn a Graduate Certificate in Leadership after only five select courses.

There are so many kids in education right now who are hurting, whose families are hurting. I believe Jesus wants us to be where the people are hurting. Being a servant leader is something I learned while at Northwestern. Really what it means, is modeling Christ's example of caring for others more than you care for yourself.
