Doctor of Education in Organizational Change and Leadership
The Doctor of Education (EdD) in Organizational Change and Leadership is designed for current and emerging leaders who are looking to drive systemic change in their organization. These leaders include individuals who currently hold or are seeking leadership positions within colleges and universities, K–12 schools and systems, private firms, and non-profit and government organizations.
EdD Program Overview
Delivered through a blend of online interactions and real-world experience, the EdD program allows students to continue working full-time while pursuing a degree that will distinguish them as organizational leaders. Students will explore how learning occurs in formal and informal workplace settings, examine effective strategies for facilitating organizational learning and learn to create systems that produce more effective, adaptable and competitive organizations.
Coursework in the EdD program will focus on practices of motivating and supervising others, assessing organizational priorities and driving innovation through new technologies. Students will complete most coursework online and will attend an annual immersion weekend held on campus at the University of Southern California. The program culminates in a dissertation and longitudinal reflective self-assessment in which students demonstrate effective application of the program’s theories and concepts.
