Active Learning Project (3 credits)
Lead by Mary Pilotte
The Active Learning Projects (ALP) provides opportunities for students to combine prior knowledge and experience with classroom learning and apply it in an active business setting. In contrast to the immersion electives, the ALP client is provided to the student teams and the project focuses on helping a firm diagnose and resolve a critical business problem. The teams are guided by a faculty member to provide the most beneficial hands-on experience possible. Experience in solving problems for clients provides students with insights and new skills to address challenges in their home company.
Change Management (1 credit)
Taught by Ben Dunford
It is often said that change is one of the great constants of organizations. That has never been more true than in our dynamic business environment. In this course, we consider how managers can address both the people-side and systems-side of implementing change in organizations. Issues considered are selecting the order of change initiatives in organizations, choosing between faster or slower implementation, and considering the implications of top-down versus bottom-up approaches.
Entrepreneurship (2 credits)
Taught by James Davis
This course examines entrepreneurship with a focus on the start-up process for high-growth new ventures. In this context, the unique challenges of starting a firm and managing growth are considered and juxtaposed with running a more established firm. Cases will be used and students may conduct a feasibility analysis of a new venture concept.
Immersion Elective (1 credit)
