Organizational Leadership, BAOL/MAOD Organization Development Accelerated Program


Applicants for the accelerated degree program must meet the following criteria in order to be accepted into the program:

  1. Have a declared major in the Bachelor in Organizational Leadership degree.
  2. Have completed at least 75 total credit hours, with at least one semester of study at Roosevelt.
  3. Have an overall GPA of 3.0 or above.

Students will consult with their department advisor and apply for the MAOD degree program by the end of the semester prior to their senior year of study.  Applicants to the accelerated program must complete all requirements for their undergraduate major prior to full admission as degree-seeking graduate students.  Accepted students must also agree to finish their MAOD program at Roosevelt and maintain good standing in master's- level courses.


New students must consult with their undergraduate adviser immediately upon admission to the accelerated program. During their senior year, admitted students may enroll in up to 9 credit hours of coursework at the graduate level. Eligible courses are listed below. 


Ten courses (30 credit hours) are required for the Organizational Leadership major (BAOL).  A total of 12 courses (36 credit hours) are required to complete the MAOD degree, including a master's portfolio.

No more than two grades of C  may be applied toward the 36 hours used for the degree. A graduate course can only be repeated once; no more than two courses can be repeated. If a student earns final grades below C in any 400-level course, enters a graduate program outside Roosevelt University, or does not continue into the MAOD program within five years, the associated credit hours will be considered undergraduate-only and will not be transferable.

Your degree map is a general guide suggesting courses to complete each term on the academic pathway to your degree. It is based on the most current scheduling information from your academic program. Your program’s degree map is reviewed annually and updated as schedules change (although you retain the same course requirements as long as you are continuously enrolled in your degree program).

Always work closely with your academic advisor to understand curriculum requirements and scheduling, as each student’s academic plan can look slightly different.
