MGMT 8420 - Challenging Conventional Leadership♦


(4 cr.) A desirable trait of modern managers and leaders is the ability to assess multiple perspectives and the confidence to assert change if needed. Conventional organizational structures and leadership behavior represent one, albeit the dominant, set of expectations based on widely understood assumptions and practices. Students in this course are provided with the opportunity to diverge from conventional leadership ideology and behavior through exploration of alternative models and lessons from a full spectrum of human organizations, such as utopians and reformers as well as intentional organizations and social experiments. Students analyze these organizations on a global level for new and promising methods, principles, and systems that may be applied and add value to local organizations. (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.
