A Comparative Case Study of Developing Leaders through a Doctoral Program: A Study of One Academic Institution
Scanlon, Sheryl Lynne
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Argosy University/Phoenix
The purpose of this comparative case study was to determine how one academic institution could address the leadership gap facing organizations today, through a traditional, classroom doctoral program in Organizational Leadership. Data was gathered utilizing mixed methods methodology that included a survey questionnaire, focus group information, and interviews. ANOVA's were conducted to determine student satisfaction with the components of the doctoral program. The strongest significant correlation was between curriculum and overall satisfaction, while the weakest correlation, not significant, was the experiential learning or fieldwork component and overall satisfaction. Recommendations for improvement revealed specific areas to be addressed by the University (electives, course content, experiential learning component, and flexibility of the program). Further research into online or hybrid doctoral programs in Organizational Leadership should be considered.
