MGT 6318 Leadership

CORE Course: This course will help students examine leadership and influence issues that managers face. We will achieve this by engaging students in a variety of activities designed to enhance their understanding of the leadership challenges that confront today's business professionals. The focus of this course will be on leading up, down, and across the organization, recognizing that leadership is not limited to managers. Students will examine various theoretical constructs as a means of becoming more aware of their own leadership styles. In addition, the course will include components on developing individual leadership skills through guest business speakers, cases, readings, projects, and simulations. Among other topics, case studies and group projects will focus on characteristics of effective leaders, power and influence strategies, crisis management, organizational politics and leadership assessment.
