Alvernia looked to Center for Creative Leadership when creating their masters in organizational leadership program
The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) was founded on the belief that leadership is not innate but rather can be learned. Since it’s inception over 30 years ago, the CCL has become known for it’s top research and delivery of leadership topics. The organizational leadership program at Alvernia incorporates the best practices of the CCL.
Some of their research subjects have included:
- The challenge of leading change in a changing world
- Effective and harmful leadership styles
- Selection of new firm leadership
- Managing productive teams
- Adaptation to volatile and unpredictable careers
- How to learn from the history of leadership
For those who want to learn a little bit more about leadership, we suggest you read the official blog of the CCL. For those who don’t just want to read about leadership but are motivated to grow as a leader, we invite you to enroll in a graduate program that will provide the tools, skills and holistic understanding to develop the necessary teamwork, collaboration, critical thinking and interpersonal skills that are essential for effective leaders.
The Alvernia MOL program focuses on developing the knowledge, skills, abilities and behaviors essential for effectively leading teams, groups and organizations. By embracing a multidisciplinary approach, students will gain a holistic perspective necessary for making decisions in today’s complex business environment.

The mission of the CCL is, “to advance the understanding, practice and development of leadership for the benefit of society worldwide.” At Alvernia, we’re proud to play a role in promoting that mission since it dovetails nicely with the purpose of the Alvernia MOL program.
