Master of Science in Leadership and Organizational Dynamics
what is Netplus?
The NetPlus! Master of Science in Leadership and Organizational Dynamics (MSLOD) is a mixed-mode MS in Leadership, which is often called a hybrid MS in Leadership or a blended MS in Leadership. This approach combines the personal interaction of a tradition face-to-face MS in Leadership supplemented with an online MS in Leadership experience. This format offers the networking benefits of in-class experiences with the convenience of online learning. The NetPlus! MS in Leadership and Organizational Dynamics is designed to be accessible to busy working professionals from a wide geographic area. While we do not call the program an executive MS in Leadership, virtually all of our NetPlus! MS in Leadership students are working full-time.
Utilizing this format, 60% of coursework is completed online and the remaining 40% of the program is in the classroom. The NetPlus! MS in Leadership is also similar to a weekend MS in Leadership since the in-class meetings occur on two weekends (Friday and Saturday) per semester. These weekend "residencies" focus on the benefits of interaction among students and the professor. The ineractions are enhanced through simulations, guest speakers, team-based learning, presentations, and many other engaging activities. As you can see, the NetPlus! format is a combination of a weekend MS in Leadership, an online MS in Leadership, and a traditional in-class MS in Leadership.
What is the Ms in leadership and organizational dynamics?
In today's challenging and complex business environment, managers are expected to react to emerging market opportunities; have the mental agility to execute new strategies; and possess a deep understanding of human behavioral dynamics and organizational design capacities so as to capitalize on emerging opportunities.
