It is sought by individuals interested in organizational learning careers, and by aspirational managers. The BS in Workplace Training and Leadership program is a flexible degree that prepares practitioners to identify and diagnose individual and organizational needs; to design, implement, and evaluate learning, development; and change strategies to improve performance.
