Considering an Online Organizational Development Degree?

One of the more in-demand educational programs that returning students seek out is an organizational development degree, especially from an institution that offers online degree programs. Regular visitors to this site know that I have taught online for a few years now, and I spent some time reading about the organizational leadership Master's degree offered by Gonzaga University.

One important consideration in choosing an online institution is the quality of the school offering the degree. There are plenty of unaccredited colleges - plus the ubiquitous diploma mills - who will be happy to enroll students for a degree that is essentially worthless in the marketplace. Gonzaga, though, is a university founded in 1887 and that is regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Schools.

Students who choose the organizational leadership degree offered by Gonzaga will likely find greater opportunities than those who pursue the organizational development degree that other schools offer. In the leadership program students spend more time on management- and consultant-related coursework, and the program is geared toward producing high quality organizational leaders, rather than simply administrative functionaries in an organization.

Unfortunately, not all students entering this educational field are aware of degree opportunities in organizational leadership. If you are considering such a degree, be sure to follow one of the above links to learn more about online Master's degree programs at Gonzaga University.
