MGMT 8410 - Leadership, Influence, and Power♦


(4 cr.) Power is often thought of as the lifeblood of leadership. Students in this course review the varieties of power and their functions. They analyze and synthesize research, focusing on how leaders influence others through the tools they have at their disposal, including aspects of personality and character that serve to help effectively influence others. Students also explore the full spectrum of leadership behavior from autocracy to emergent consensus and how rights and powers are distributed to people in order to achieve their responsibilities in an organization. Practicing doctoral-level skills, students also engage in scholarly writing assignments, such as the preparation of a literature review, lending to a significant research topic, problem, and research question. (Prerequisite(s): RSCH 8101M [may be taken concurrently].)
♦ 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.
