TGI offers the first and only Master of Arts in Leadership in Connecticut. Our unique program approaches leadership as both an art and a science.
The faculty for the Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership (MAOL) was assembled to provide the most diverse and stimulating developmental experience possible. includes advisors to some of the world’s largest companies - as well as some of the most famous start-ups. The faculty also includes academicians and researchers. Together, they work with TGI students to help each student identify, define, and achieve their vision of leadership—in the community, on the job, or even at home.
Students design and execute individualized “breakthrough” projects, often with astounding results. Past projects have included establishing a network of healthcare clinics in Haiti, founding a not-for-profit insurance company with a charitable aim, creating partnerships and alliances among local educational districts and state agencies, and a number of other initiatives that have generated revenues and cost savings in the millions of dollars.
But the real value of this program can’t be measured in dollars and cents. It’s in the personal and professional development of each of our students and alumni, who are committed to making leadership part of their capacity and whose leadership is actively making a difference in the world we live in.
The MAOL Experience
Learning in the MAOL occurs through 3 types of experience: Inquiry, Practice, and Application. Together, these three approaches provide an integrative approach to exploring, embodying, and expressing your unique expression of Leadership. Note that Learning Experiences are not discreet courses but rather a way for prospective students to understand what they will experience in the program.
Program Structure & Experience
The MAOL is a cohort experience: you will engage in all coursework with the same group of 8-12 individuals over the course of two years. This format facilitates the forming and nurturing of a powerful community of practitioners. In our experience over the past 25 years, the value that emerges from the community of learners over time is as important to your development as the value provided by the instructors we bring in to work with you. The holding of intentional space for this community to form is one of the primary accountabilities of the program's core faculty.
