The information session will be held in the Trustees Dining Room at Mercer’s Atlanta Campus, 3001 Mercer University Drive, located just off Interstate 85 inside the northeast perimeter.
A 16-month degree-completion program, Organization Leadership has an interdisciplinary focus, leading to a bachelor’s degree.
