MGMT 8425M - Responding to Behavior and Change as a Multicultural Leader♦


(5 cr.) Leadership in a global context with transnational organizations requires an understanding of the differences that exist among people as employees, colleagues, and customers. Students in this course are introduced to advanced research topics in leadership and organizational behavior as well as ways in which leaders respond to change within an organization as they relate to the challenges of leading in internationalized, cross-cultural, and diverse contexts.

Students analyze theories of cross-cultural practice, diversity in thinking, culture and belief systems, and stakeholder management as well as strategic and change management theories. Students also use traditional leadership methods and strategies to explore how the need for change is perceived, understood, and managed, and how change manifests itself from external and internal sources. They actively engage in identifying potential research topics for their dissertation and explore the behavioral and strategic dimensions of the topics under study.
♦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.
