LEARNING OBJECTIVES Most students will become a member of an organization (profit or nonprofit ) regardless of major or career choice requiring them to interact with others and possibly lead individuals and teams. Many successful CEOs believe that people are an organization’s most valuable resource. This course is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to understand human behavior and become an effective leader in various environments, thus enhancing the success of their organizational experience. Many students have also indicated that course principles have been known to further their development and growth on a personal level as well. “The mission of the Farmer School of Business is to be a premier business program that provides students with the life-long ability to acquire knowledge and translate it into responsible action in a competitive global environment. Toward that end, across the curriculum we seek to develop a number of important skills/perspectives in all of our graduates, including critical thinking and ethical decision making, effective communication, and international/diversity perspectives.” Management and Leadership (MGT 291) is concerned with utilizing the scientific discovery process to enhance our understanding of how management and leadership principles are best applied in work environments. The goal of this course is to explore how the most successful businesses attract, develop, and retain their human capital. Primarily, analytical, critical thinking, communication, feedback, team, leadership, and resilience skills will be developed in this course. We will also engage in discussions about diversity and ethics within an organizational and international context. Therefore, the overall learning objective for this course is to create a developmental learning environment that will enable students to: 1. Develop an overall understanding of management and leadership from a theoretical, research, and ethical practice perspective. 2. Develop a critical understanding of the research discovery process for solving complex problems in organizational settings and creating competitive human resource practices.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
