Degree Completion:
Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership

Finish Your College Degree

The undergraduate degree completion 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. 

Degree requirements

The program consists of 60 credits taken at Manhattan College. A Bachelor of Science Degree with a concentration in Organizational Leadership from Manhattan College will be conferred once a student has completed 60 credits at Manhattan College, acquired 60 credits transferred from prior or other educational sources, and has met all financial obligations.
