If you want the challenge of taking charge in complex environments, you may be suited to a major in Organizational Leadership. In AUM’s special multi-disciplinary applied science program, you’ll learn what makes an effective leader, the best ways to motivate others, and how to foster cohesiveness and collaboration. In real-world scenarios, you’ll practice problem solving and conflict management that have applications to military professionals, state and federal agencies, law enforcement, universities and colleges, and non-profit organizations, as well as those organizations engaged in counseling, training and development, life-span learning and healthcare. Choose between two tracks of Organizational Leadership: a military track that requires participation in Army or Air Force ROTC, and a non-military track.

Put Your Degree to Work
Note: While salaries vary depending on several factors including your level of experience, education and training, and geography and industry, here is a sampling of the future job growth and salaries in this area.
Employment of management occupations is projected to grow 6 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations, which will result in about 505,400 new jobs. Employment growth will be driven by the formation of new organizations and expansion of existing ones, which will require more workers to manage these operations. The median annual wage for management occupations was $97,230 in May 2014, which was the highest wage of all the major occupational groups.
