What Makes the MAOL Different from the MBA?
While MBA programs typically take an analytical approach to management and focus on areas like finance, accounting, marketing and statistics, the master's in organizational leadership program focuses on critical thinking, mentoring and coaching, organizational behavior and change, communication, emotional intelligence, team building and leadership development. The MAOL curriculum is designed to cultivate skills associated with effective leadership.
