MGMT 8440 - The Socially Conscious Leader♦


(4 cr.) Socially conscious leadership involves the use of widely diverse psycho- and socio-graphic sensibilities regarding stakeholder interests and those of the larger society. In this course, students learn how to harness such awareness and examine the pursuit and distribution of profit, the mission of the organization, the methods of management, and organizational growth and restructuring to achieve new strategic objectives. They explore the nature of leadership in the context of a stakeholder environment with “triple bottom line” responsibilities—profit, sustainability, and social justice. They also study the nature of formal and informal relationships among people and between an organization and the community(s) in which the organization does business. This course presents students with the opportunity to gain skills necessary to understand the motives as well as the impact of organization and leadership failure. (Prerequisite(s): RSCH 8300Z.)
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
