DDBA 8150 - Leadership: Building Sustainable Organizations♦


(3 sem. cr.) Business leaders may take on a range of personalities, including charismatic, transformational, adaptive, or contextual. Regardless of style, one thing that they all have in common is the ability to identify and develop leadership strategies that lend to the success and sustainability of a business. In this course, students examine these strategies as well as the role, attributes, and challenges of leaders in a global environment. Students assess current articles, engage in online discussions, and complete application assignments based on globalization, individual and group behaviors, organizational culture and change, systems thinking, innovation, social responsibility, and sustainability. They explore these basic dimensions of leadership and how they affect the employee, organization, community, and environment. Students focus on the practical application of writing, resourcefulness, critical thinking, and the integration of professional practice at the doctoral level as they develop sustainable solutions from the perspective of a global leader.
