The Versatile Major: Organizational Leadership

Often times it is impossible to break into the more “comfy” financial side of corporate America without certification in higher education, i.e. degree(s). A concentration choice becoming evermore popular because of its flexibility in use is organizational leadership. This major offers potential students an education in influence, effective communication, team building, and management. Millikin University offers this concentration with a twist— a flexible learning curriculum to accommodate the not-so-average college student.
