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.
