Organizational Leadership

Organizational Leadership Major

Our organizational leadership (OL) grads are visionaries that set strategic goals for organizations. They lead, direct, and motivate individuals and teams within organizations to achieve those goals.

Our grads are in high demand because they understand how technology, innovation, and leadership intersect.

The OL degree integrates the knowledge and hands-on skills necessary to:

  • Maximize organizational performance
  • Lead teams developing and delivering high-value solutions and services
  • Master cutting-edge tools and analytics to manage technology and lead people.

Where can I go?


The  Organizational Leadership Program at Purdue University is accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering Commission of ATMAE.

I chose Organizational Leadership because it leaves the door open for so many different opportunities. Whether you are dead set on what you want your future to look like or have no idea what it will look like, this program allows both paths. Those paths could allow you to be a leader, a manager or even a supervisor within any of those occupations.
