Entering students will ideally have at least 66 units of college coursework before entering the program, so that the additional 54 units of degree requirements will provide them with the 120 units total required for graduation. Students with fewer units may be admitted with the understanding that they will need to take additional courses beyond those required by the Organizational Leadership degree program to complete their graduation requirements.

NOTE: This program is not open to current Pacific students
