Doctorate in Organizational Leadership (Ed.D.) Programs

On the surface, organizational leadership is a pretty surprising major for a Doctor of Education degree. Rooted in the groundbreaking work of organizational psychologist Kurt Lewin (1890-1947) and his successors, it applies the fundamental principles of behavioral psychology to the gray-flannel world of organizational management. The only clue that you’re pursuing an education degree lies in the Ed.D. title itself; a Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership would be understood (correctly, in most cases) to be a doctorate in psychology and management, not one in education.
