Belmont’s Masters Program in Organizational Leadership and Communication (OLC) is designed to build skills and knowledge for practical application in the workplace. Students completing the program will develop their leadership potential and explore leadership styles and models. The central aim of the program is the development of organizational leaders as reflective practitioners who are skilled in observation, analysis, synthesis and dialogue. The role of ethical decisions and practices is central to these goals and is explicitly addressed in a variety of contexts in the OLC program.
