 Bachelor of Science
 Hours: 46
Admission Requirements: To graduate with a departmental major, students must first earn admission to the department. This typically occurs during the spring semester of the second year, and late-entry transfer students apply for admission after their first semester at EMU. Students must have department admission to apply for an internship and several upper-level courses. Students seek admission to the department by completing an application and an interview with their advisor; they must meet the GPA requirement of 2.00 overall and 2.50 for major courses taken at EMU. Students must maintain these GPA standards to retain admission and to graduate from the department.

Many courses in the department have prerequisites; this requirement is met by earning a letter grade of C or higher on the prerequisite course before enrolling in subsequent courses (a grade of C- does not meet this requirement).

The organizational leadership major prepares students for management of human capital and organizational systems. The major emphasizes the development of leadership and interpersonal skills in the context of leading organizations in dynamic conditions. Career opportunities for graduates include entry-level leadership roles in organizations, including team, program, and project management, or in human resource departments.
