Course Description

BUS 635 Management & Leadership

Management & Leadership are often used as  interchangeable terms. This course distinguishes between the functions of management needed to operate a business and the skill required to motivate individuals toward accomplishing shared goals. Management and leadership are addressed within the context of the connections between the constantly changing external environmental forces and the internal organizational tensions that result in a complex system that needs to be continuously realigned to achieve performance goals. A balance between theory and practice gives students a clear understanding of management leadership models and their application in organizations through case analysis and projects designed to promote critical thinking. Personal values and ethics provide a lens and foundation through which to evaluate the complexity of decision making and directing individuals, teams and organizations from a moral perspective.  This course will help build your confidence to take the wise and courageous action required to be successful in a modern global business environment.
