A Flexible Approach to Organizational Leadership
There are many approaches to organizational leadership in the 21st century. The NCU general organizational leadership specialization allows students the flexibility to select from a broad range of courses that fit their personal and professional goals. At the end of the program, students will complete a final written research project, demonstrating the ability to conduct an investigation on a workplace problem, identify an area for intervention, and critique, justify and recommend a plan of preventative action. With the general organizational leadership specialization, you will gain knowledge to evaluate personal leadership skills and the components of leadership that contribute to the health of an organization, as well as how to apply leadership best practices within an organization.
The NCU Difference
NCU's unique approach to graduate education is ideal for self-starters and independent thinkers who want a premier education with unprecedented flexibility. With NCU’s online learning model, there are weekly starts for every program or course. Our education approach was developed to meet the needs of your busy life and schedule. We use a unique one-to-one learning model that pairs one student with one doctoral professor for each course. With no teaching assistants, you learn directly from experts who provide personal feedback and professional insights. Northcentral University's School of Business and Technology Management has a results-oriented approach to online education, delivering rigorous doctoral, master's, bachelor's and graduate certificate programs to help you develop the business acumen that companies seek. Throughout your academic journey, you will be mentored by professors who are experienced in your field of study. At NCU, you will never have to participate in group projects. You move forward on your pace, by setting your own studying schedule. In a class size of one, there’s no one to get in the way of your individual success. None of our programs have residency requirements, allowing flexible access to you no matter where you live. When you enroll in NCU to earn an advanced degree in business, you will become part of a community of professionals who are already making a difference around the world.
“With a full-time professional job, two children and a family, I think it would have been impossible to [earn my degree] any other way. I looked at other universities and most of them required me to travel at least an hour and a half to two hours away from where I lived to move forward with a doctorate. [NCU’s online program] was a great opportunity.” - Erik Puhlman, PhD in Business Administration (2016)
