The Leadership and Organizational Behavior pathway is for those students who want to develop expertise in leadership, learning to manage oneself, manage others, manage teams and relationships with others, and lead organizational change. These courses provide a range of individual and group study, so that you have both a theoretical understanding of leadership and hands-on experience as a leader.

What is an optional pathway?

Fisher's optional pathways are a group of classes designed to provide competence in a particular area or field.  The pathways listed are only a small example of the options available through an extensive list of electives.  With guidance from your coaches, you can access elective courses at Fisher and across more than 100 graduate programs at Ohio State.
