The Organizational Leadership and Supervision Bachelor of Science program is accredited by the Applied Science Accreditation Commission of ABET. This ensures that the program is independently reviewed and meets the quality expectation for that profession.
I love the fact that my classes teach me academic knowledge along with the practical skills I need going out into the workforce. The small class sizes and the personal interactions with my professors and office staff have made my journey towards earning my degree in OLS both rewarding and exciting.
The OLS program allowed me to see many aspects of different organizations as well as the fundamentals of what it takes to stand out in the business world. I had teachers who were attorneys, engineers and doctors, all with very helpful information to not only help me with the degree program but my future career too.
