IPSY 6540 - Management and Leadership in a Global Environment


(5 cr.) Public policy implementation can take place in various types of organizations. Students in this course engage in a collaborative study of strategic planning, management, and leadership in the context of public and nonprofit organizations. Students in this course identify, analyze, and evaluate the intricate relationships between strategic planning, management, and leadership from an international perspective. Students connect three key institutional elements: thinking, acting, and leading strategically. They apply a management systems approach as they develop, adopt, manage, and lead a strategic plan for an international public or nonprofit organization or with an international focus. Students will understand the strategic context for practical decision making for international public and nonprofit organizations, emphasizing the central role of the environment in the strategic planning process. Through this course, students are offered a hands-on approach that tests students’ ability to make effective and timely management and leadership decisions in complex and uncertain conditions.
