Chief Learning Officers are in charge of learning management in nearly every industry, driving corporate strategy with talent development.

The Organization, Information, and Learning Sciences (OILS) program offers a unique perspective on learning by concentrating on the convergence of organization development, information design, data management, and instructional and technology.

The new learning officer concentration offers a path for professionals to quickly develop a competitive edge in this expanding field of employment. Students apply their learning in real-world contexts developing tools and processes to make education more relevant, timely and engaging for organizations.
The on-line degree allows students to complete an MA in thirty credit hours. Courses are eight weeks, and students can start at any time. Most undergraduate degrees are accepted as the prerequisite to entering the program.
This program prepares leaders who facilitate organizational learning, instructional technology, and data management initiatives in real world settings.

The goals of the program include:

  • Students are prepared for careers as educators, researchers, and developers of next-generation curricula, technology-enriched learning environments, and instructional programs
  • Students understand how to investigate how people interact with information and ideas, as well as what interests and motivates them.
  • Students know how to use this knowledge to create new, often computer-based, approaches to enhance the learning process.

Graduates will be in demand in any organization that values an educated and well-trained workforce.
