B.S. in Organizational Leadership

Start or Finish Your College Degree

The B.S. in Organizational Leadership program at Manhattan College is a unique alternative to the traditional method of earning a college degree. The program is designed to provide adult students a non-traditional opportunity to complete a baccalaureate degree for the advancement of their professional careers and for personal achievement.

The program is offered in a highly structured, hybrid format. Each group of students proceeds as a cohort through a series of courses and experiences leading to a common completion. Utilizing a collaborative format, each cohort persists together throughout the program of courses as mutually supportive learning communities supported by faculty facilitators and interactive communication. All courses are offered in the evenings, from 5 p.m. to 9.p.m.
