Course Description

MGMT 200 - Management Accounting
MGMT 390 - Leadership in Rome

This course examines the theoretical underpinnings of leadership through a survey of case studies from ancient Rome to the present day. Students will consider historical models of leadership ranging from the strategies of Republican and Imperial Rome, papal dominance, fascist rule, to modern-day examples that address issues of corporate ethics, multi-cultural awareness and collaboration. On-site classes in Rome will explore the relationship between public spaces and power, the impact of private interests on the architecture of the city, and effective management. Term projects will investigate issues of corporate innovation and the successful business model of EATALY and its partnership with the Slow Food movement and the global impact it has. An investigation of history, culture, sustainability and profitability are fused, and are the driving forces behind this now global venture, with its largest retail outlet in Rome, Italy.
