Master of Science in Organizational Development and Leadership

Today’s healthcare systems are ever-changing. As a result, they need individuals like you who understand the art and science of leading dynamic change—individuals who can create a positive culture, improve organizational performance and maximize human potential.

PCOM’s Master of Science degree in Organizational Development and Leadership (ODL) uniquely combines organizational theory and individual self-discovery to provide an essential leadership perspective.

Our program, offered on the Philadelphia campus, is led by faculty with expertise in organizational development, leadership and change management. All sectors (not-for-profit, for-profit, government, education and healthcare) are represented in the classroom, offering a rich diversity of perspectives and experiences. For students who work in the healthcare sector, the ODL program’s unique setting within a medical school and healthcare community will provide you with enhanced insight into healthcare systems and providers, as well as their organizational change issues, challenges and opportunities.

During this dynamic, 36-credit program, you will explore and share practical information in an open, collaborative learning environment. This program features full weekend delivery, a schedule designed with working professionals in mind, blending face-to-face learning and online, technology-based project work.
