Student Life

Overview of the environment for students in the Master of Professional Studies in Management and Organizational Leadership Program from the Penn State Smeal College of Business.

The Master of Professional Studies in Management and Organizational Leadership Program from the Penn State Smeal College of Business is designed to develop future leaders who are knowledgeable, act with integrity, and have an ethic of teamwork. We work to create a diverse learning environment that leverages the resources of Penn State while offering a highly personalized student experience.

Collaborative Environment

Teamwork is a fundamental part of the learning experience at Smeal. You will join a small team of other MOL students and remain with that group to work on deliverables across multiple courses.

The program’s Team Process and Performance course in the first module of the fall semester provides the framework to help you thrive in a team-based environment. As individual skills develop, you will learn to work together more effectively to complete a variety of group-based projects.
