Module 3

Leadership (2 credits)

Taught by Brad Alge

Many leadership courses consider leadership to be a monolithic concept or simply a discernment between managers and leaders. In contrast, this course examines different leadership tracks that reflect the unique needs of functional managers and the executive managers. For the functional manager, we focus on relationship leadership which reflects their position and time demands in the organization. For executive managers, we also focus on strategic leadership which reflects their more senior position within the decision-making process.

Meet Associate Professor of Management Brad Alge and get an introduction to this course.
