The MA in Organizational Management is distinctively different from an MBA program. Coursework in a traditional business school is focused on the nuts and bolts of business administration, with a few classes that teach “soft skills.” The majority of the Organizational Management curriculum is focused on the leadership, team building, critical thinking, human relations, and emotional intelligence needed in the contemporary workplace. These are essential competencies for success as an individual contributor, group supervisor, team leader, executive, or consultant.
Here’s what some of the leaders in the field are saying about “soft skills”:
- On the Lesson Plan: Feelings (Soft Skills) by Melissa Korn and Joe Light
- How Business School’s Lost Their Way by Warren Bennis and James O’Toole
An MA in Organizational Management can prepare you for the changes ahead.
