Ethical leadership today involves understanding and acting with the acknowledgment that we are all global citizens in an increasingly diverse world. Businesses and nonprofit organizations no longer operate inside borders. As a leader, you need the ability to communicate across cultures both in the United States and internationally.

The MAOL curriculum integrates multicultural and global perspectives in every course. You will increase your intercultural competence and learn to influence an organization to make ethical decisions that affect people of differing ages, races, religions, ethnicities and geographies. St. Catherine also offers multiple study-abroad options.
