Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership
Applied Leadership Concentration


The Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership at Waldorf University is designed to develop students’ leadership and equip them to use that leadership as an instrument for organization change. Students evaluate their personal talents and opportunities for leadership, develop leadership knowledge and skills that can be directly applied to their chosen career fields, sharpen their decision-making as leaders, and learn how to shape organization culture. Waldorf’s M.A. in Organizational Leadership includes a variety of optional applied leadership concentrations, so students may tailor their leadership to their chosen career fields.

The Applied Leadership Concentration track requires successful completion of a minimum of 15 credits in the concentration area. Students have the option of completing a second Applied Leadership Concentration by meeting the 15 credit requirement under both concentrations.

There are seven concentrations to select from: Criminal Justice Leadership, Emergency Management Leadership, Fire/Rescue Executive Leadership, Healthcare Administration, Human Resource Management, Public Administration Leadership, Sport Management, and Teacher Leader.
