If you’re motivated to help lead positive change in an organization while enhancing your own careers, there are options for you.


Grand View offers four degrees: master's in organizational leadershipMSN with options for the Clinical Nurse Leader and nursing education, master's in education with a focus on teacher leadership, and the master's in sport management. The Grand View faculty who lead your classes are experts in their fields, engaged in teaching, research and practice. So you’ll experience the personal satisfaction and creative insights that come from active engagement with both students and faculty who have experience in multiple organizations, positions and sectors.

Convenient Schedule

Graduate courses are offered one night per week and selected Saturdays. You can start your studies in the fall or the spring terms for all degrees except the MSN. Target completion time for most degrees is two years, although some students may finish in less time – or slightly more.

All classes are held on Grand View’s two campuses – the main campus and the Camp Dodge campus – so you’ll take advantage of the personal attention and energetic student-faculty interaction that have always been hallmarks of a Grand View education.
