Organizational Evaluation Degree Program
Good organizational decisions aren't a result of luck—they're driven by relevant and timely information.
As organizational leaders become more aware of how planned evaluations can positively affect practices, employee performance, and change within their organization, the need for specially trained individuals will continue to grow.
Loyola's MEd in Organizational Evaluation prepares individuals for roles as evaluators and change agents. The program is a strong choice for individuals starting their careers as well as those who may already have an advanced degree and are looking to augment their credentials and improve their marketability. The program is also ideal for professionals who are currently employed in social service organizations, private foundations, research firms, and human resources or training departments. Courses from Loyola's School of Education and the Graduate School of Business will provide students with an interdisciplinary perspective. Students in the program will also:
- Develop the skills and knowledge to conduct systematic data collection/knowledge generation with cutting-edge methods.
- Hone their evaluation and communication techniques so that stakeholders and audiences benefit from the process.
- Engage in activities that reflect responsible leadership and social justice.
- Recognize that solving performance gaps requires a holistic approach.
- Become experts in how social programming can address workplace issues and inequities.
- Acquire the ability to lead evaluations in a variety of environments.
We look forward to recruiting a cohort of students deeply committed to social justice whose diverse backgrounds and previous work experiences—as well as future career objectives—will enrich the learning environment. Students in this cohort will benefit from networking and bonding with one another during the course of their program. Once a cohort is formed, the students participate together in all of the required courses leading to the MEd degree.
