The course addresses the topic of leadership in relation to the responsibility of the leader towards various stakeholders (e.g. employees, shareholders, community, suppliers, and environment) in both national and international context. In the course we evaluate advanced leadership theory and build practical leadership capabilities.
This course investigates core leadership theories, including their development, measurement, and application to real world situations. This course will help you recognise leadership characteristics and contextual factors that contribute to effective leadership, and can help you diagnose leadership situations to make interventions. Learning Philosophy: This course is a student-centered, not lecturer-centered, learning experience. What this means is that everyone – lecturers and students – needs to be an active participant in whatever is going on in class, and that we all are interconnected and responsible for facilitating learning. Class time involves discussions based on outside-of-class reading and assignments. In order for everyone to learn, please come prepared for class.WorkloadThe estimated workload breakdown for MGMT616S1 is: Lectures 24Lecture Preparation 48Assessments 78Total 150 hours
