Bachelor’s/MS in Organizational Leadership: Robert Morris University Bachelor’s/MS in Organizational Leadership | Robert Morris University


The integrated Bachelor’s/MS in Organizational Leadership program allows qualified students to earn rapidly both a bachelor’s degree and an MS in Organizational Leadership master degree program. The M.S. in Organizational Leadership degree focuses on organizations and the personnel who manage them, including communications, ethics, structure, change, leadership, legal issues, critical thinking and decision-making. Students are encouraged and, in fact, required to bring problems they are experiencing in the workplace to the classroom and use the knowledge and skills they have learned to create a workable and immediate solution. The skills embody interpersonal skills, conflict resolution, leadership, problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, emotional intelligence and the ability to work in a diverse environment.

The SCIS Integrated Program requires the student to earn a minimum of 150 credits in order to earn both degrees. Some students may be able to earn an integrated program discount of 3 to 6 credits. Students on undergraduate checksheets that require 126 or more credits may receive up to 6 credits of discount. Students on undergraduate checksheets that require 123 to 125 credits, may receive up to 3 credits of discount. Students on undergraduate checksheets requiring fewer than 123 credits will not receive any integrated program discount since their combined credits must equal at least 150 credits. The integrated program discount is normally applied on the graduate checksheet.

The Integrated Flat Rate of tuition is just a little over $1000 per year more than the Traditional Flat Rate of tuition. Traditional graduate students must pay per credit so having the flat rate option with the Integrated program is a huge savings in additional to your RMU scholarship applying in the fifth year of study.
