Designed with the working professional in mind, the Master of Science in Organizational Development and Leadership (ODL) programs in both our Philadelphia and Georgia Campuses prepares leaders in the art and science of managing strategic change and leadership. Using assessments, planned interventions, action research and evaluations, the skills of the ODL practitioner can help large and small organizations or departments to demonstrate improvements in leadership, decision-making, planning, conflict resolution, control and productivity. ODL students learn how to become instruments of change and how to incorporate human development, needs and ethics into organizational development plans and procedures.
