Organizational leadership and supervision Minor

A minor in organizational leadership and supervision will expose you to current issues in leadership and how organizations operate. The knowledge and skills you learn from these classes will be beneficial in any career after graduation.

The OLS minor consists of four courses (12 credit hours). The courses in the OLS minor provide for a solid foundation in leadership that fits well with other majors. It also provides a foundation for further study towards an associate and bachelor's degree in organizational leadership and supervision or, starting in Fall 2015, technology leadership and innovation.

The OLS minor is open only to any Purdue University West Lafayette campus major.

For students who enrolled in the minor Spring 2007 or later, a grade of "C" or higher is required in ALL OLS courses for successful completion.
