MGMT610 - Foundations of Teamwork and Leadership
At every level of an organization, teamwork and leadership are required for organizational success. Teamwork and leadership have always been critical to society, but they have acquired new significance in recent years during this era of heightened uncertainty, restructuring, and change. The tenor of leadership has changed as well. Many organizations are flattening their hierarchies and building work teams, with "command and control" leadership giving way to facilitation and empowerment. Format: This course focuses on developing your knowledge and skill set for teamwork and leadership. This course ismeant to be an intense immersion experience that draws strongly on the pedagogyof the "Wharton Teamwork and Leadership Simulation," a team-based, highly interactive, simulation that was designed specifically to allow you to experience the core concepts you will learn in this class. The simulation is based on research evidence and on specific business cases and outcomes. The simulation is strongly interwoven with your classroom experience and cutting edge and theory to give you a rich understanding of teamwork and leadership principles.
MGMT961 - ADVANCED TOPICS IN MICRO
The purpose of this course is to explore key concepts and research programs in the field of micro-organizational behavior. We will do this in two ways. We will cover a blend of classic and contemporary literature so that we can appreciate the prevailing theories and findings in various subfields. However, for each topic we will also go beyond the existing literature. We will work to increase our understanding by re-framing key variables, altering perspectives, bringing in new theories, and comparing levels of analysis.
