Master’s in Organization Development and Leadership Career Outlook

The economy may heat up or cool down, entire industries might come and go, but effective leadership is always in high demand. An online Master’s in Organization Development and Leadership (MODL) from Saint Joseph’s University will give you the leadership education to take command of any career situation and stand apart in the eyes of employers.

At the same time, developing as a leader helps ensure maximum career flexibility in an economy that rewards versatility and expertise in the art of managing people and teams. The experiential online learning environment at Saint Joseph’s University will also have you apply leadership concepts in your own organization as you learn them in class, helping you grow into higher profile leadership roles even before you graduate. That’s one reason why nearly eight out of ten online MODL graduates from Saint Joseph’s University get promoted or increase their management influence once they receive the degree.

The need for effective leadership often transcends job titles, but for those jobs most often associated with advanced leadership skills, the career outlook is outstanding.
