Organizational Leadership

I think Siena gave us a pretty good 360-degree view on how to start a business. Just start. You’re going to try to think everything all the way through to the end. And once you start, it’s going to be totally different. Just take an idea and start with it.

The Organizational Leadership M.A. program is intended for individuals who have five or more years of professional work experience. 

The focus of the program is the personal and professional development of the individual as a facilitator and manager of change in self, others, and organizations. These skills are becoming increasingly critical as organizations seek to remain relevant and competitive in a rapidly changing world. 

The curriculum incorporates multidisciplinary concepts from the social sciences, business and communications.

Organizational Leadership education based on morality, ethics and social justice. We discover and question theories and practices toward: "Seeking truth within an unfolding and living tradition flourishes when minds and hearts are free to dialogue, willing to risk certainty and give questions a full explanation."
- Ruth Poochigian, ed., Meeting the Charism Again/For the First Time, Dominican Values, "Building Community" 

We perform this task through research, discussion and applied fact-finding via personal interaction and collaboration.
