The Minor in Organizational Leadership, offered by the Department of Management, is open to students in the Fox School of Business and Management (except for Business Management majors) and the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management.

Research shows that business school graduates need certain skills beyond their technical competence as they step into leadership roles. Graduates with the Organizational Leadership minor are better able to think and act in valuable ways that benefit the interests of multiple organizational stakeholders. The four courses comprising this minor enhance your organizational leadership skills, specifically:

  • Organizational communication and influence;
  • Conflict management and negotiation;
  • Team building and performance management; and
  • Critical thinking and problem-solving.
