Be the Author of Your Leadership Story
Effective, ethical, and enduring leadership practices are woven into every organizational leadership master's degree course. Ground your leadership in collaboration, interpersonal connections, and a comprehensive view of personal and professional growth. Identify your strengths as a leader, and enhance your ability to make courageous and wise decisions that move your career and your organization forward.
St. Kate’s online MAOL courses in leadership and management, strategic communication, organizational development and innovation help you build a comprehensive leadership toolkit. And classes in culture, diversity, equity and inclusion give you a culturally relevant, forward-facing perspective to lead your organization into the future.
A three-course certificate option is available for those who want a shorter, more focused leadership learning experience. Enroll in the Foundations of Leadership certificate to sharpen your leadership skills and, if you choose, lay the foundation for a master's – all nine credits earned may count toward the MAOL degree.
We also offer "custom" certificate options. In collaboration with businesses, nonprofits or public agencies, the University designs a customized, three-course leadership certificate to meet the needs of partner organizations, with classes held online or "on site" for their employees. If your organization is interested in partnering with St. Kate's, contact Greg Steenson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
