Career Pathways

As a student and graduate of the MAOL program, you'll make connections between:

  • Personal and professional development,
  • Classroom learning one day and workplace applications the next, and
  • Your leadership potential and your future career success.

If you enroll in St. Catherine’s MAOL program, be prepared to change. The leadership skills you gain will prepare you to take on more responsibilities, rise to higher management positions and achieve a broader view to help your organization succeed.

Whether you stay in your current role and learn to work and think in different ways or evolve to a more challenging role as a result of your MAOL experience, your career will be altered by your understanding of your leadership strengths, your knowledge of leadership principles and your grasp of the foundational skills needed to lead.

Come to the MAOL ready to challenge yourself and your organization.

Real-world career applications — today and tomorrow

In the MAOL program, your leadership education is both instant and enduring. You can apply the concepts you learn on a Saturday and apply them in your workplace on a Monday. And the strategies you learn and abilities you'll develop through the program will serve you at work, at home and in the community — for the rest of your life.

Building your leadership network

MAOL students range in age from 25 to 60 and bring an average of 10 years experience in for-profit and nonprofit fields, including technology, business, education, banking, media, healthcare, insurance, government, retail, travel and human services. The variety of perspectives in our small, discussion-based classes vastly enhances the education you receive. Fellow students become collaborators, resources and friends.

You'll learn with students and faculty members who are leading change. In an interactive learning environment, you'll make connections with people with expertise in a wide range of fields. And because St. Kate's faculty members have far-reaching connections, you will benefit from guest presenters with impressive leadership credentials.

After you graduate

The MAOL Alumni Network offers channels to support your ongoing professional networking, lifelong learning and giving back. Opportunities include informal networking events and service projects, an annual leadership event, the program's Leading Edge newsletter and outreach to current MAOL students.
