  • Credit Hours: 4R-0L-4C
  • Term Available: -
  • Prerequisites: None
  • Corequisites: None

This course examines the art of leadership and its development in our increasingly globalized society. In this course students will apply their general education and use their knowledge, experience, and perspectives learned in a variety of disciplines to investigate the nature and dynamics of leadership. Examining general theoretical approaches, with close attention to the unique challenges which globalization and cross-cultural interactions impose upon leaders, the class will work on three case studies. The first case study focuses on an individual in order to illustrate leadership development. The second will focus on a corporation in order to illustrate mutual influence of leaders, constituents, and organizations. The third will be about an event or a situation which exemplifies the challenges and creativity of leadership in global/transnational/multicultural operations.
