Course Descriptions

Organizational Behavior - OBHR 33000
A contemporary workplace axiom is that an employee is "hired for her or his technical skills, fired for poor people skills, and promoted for leadership and management skills" (Russell & Yao, 1997). To that end, this class is designed to help students improve the array of "soft" people skills that play such a crucial role in professional development. We will explore topics such as leadership, team dynamics, conflict management, performance management, negotiation and problem solving. All of this will be done in the context of Spanish culture immersion to provide students with a unique opportunity to prepare themselves for leadership positions in multinational corporations. Our subject matter, physical location and small class size will facilitate the integration of Spanish culture and soft skill development. For example we will visit historic sites in Spain which bring to life leadership lessons from the course. The intimate setting will facilitate interactive workshop style discussions, experiential exercises and self-assessments which cannot be done in large traditional undergraduate courses. In short, the class will be taught in the style of an executive coaching seminar, without work experience or prior Spanish culture knowledge being pre-requisites

MGMT 39000 - International Elective
This course will be taught by on site local faculty. Course title and content is TBD until further notice.
