Curriculum

The curriculum of the Indiana Wesleyan University Doctor of Philosophy with a major in Organizational Leadership degree program is designed to contribute to the student’s development as a servant leader who has mastered seven domains of knowledge:

  • Personal Authenticity
  • Organizational Learning
  • Organizational Theory and Research
  • Change, Innovation, Entrepreneurship
  • Globalization and Multiculturalism
  • Governance and Ethics
  • Servant Leaders as World Changers

A foundational expertise integrated into each domain is the mastery of critical thinking, research, and problem solving.

This program is designed to be completed in three years but can be modified with approval from the department chairperson. The program offers an integrated and seamless progression through courses that requires a one-step enrollment process for the entire program. Courses are taken with a cohort of fellow students, which develops into an action learning team that incorporates the leadership knowledge and experience of both faculty and students. Terms are normally 11 weeks in length and include a blend of classroom and online sessions. Classes meet at IWU’s Indianapolis (North) Education Center three Saturdays of each term, with summer residencies held on the main campus in Marion, Indiana, for eight days each July and followed by nine weeks of online discussion forums.
