    View Course Catalog for a complete list of courses and detailed descriptions.

    The CCU Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL) curriculum includes 12 courses designed to develop effective, ethical leaders. Courses are sequenced so that lower-level coursework can be taken before enrolling in more advanced courses. Each course is taken over a seven-week time period. Weekly assignments are required, but the course design generally allows participants to complete coursework at the times and places that work best for them (prior to scheduled deadlines).

    The Master of Organizational Leadership program features a required annual three-day National Leadership Session (NLS) hosted at CCU’s main campus located in Lakewood, Colorado. All MOL students are required to attend the annual National Leadership Sessions each year to fulfill a three credit in-seat requirement -- a total of 6 credit hours at National Leadership Sessions over two years. RES505 - Research Methods and Community Praxis and LED510 - Values-Aligned Leadership comprise the NLS courses that MOL students will be required to attend. For students with extenuating circumstances unable to physically attend (e.g., deployed active military), the National Leadership Sessions will be available online.

    For online courses, CCU students utilize Blackboard Learn, a leading solution in electronic education, to participate in Master of Organizational Leadership classes that blend the latest in eLearning technology with the latest business theory and practice. Students attend classes electronically, do research using the Internet, exchange e-mail, and participate in online discussions. Even assignments and tests are submitted online.
