MGT 701 - Current Topics in Management

(3 Credits)

This course examines the changing role of management in the 21st century. The new challenges faced by managers today are the primary focus. Traditional management principles are presented as a fountain for understanding how work is accomplished in organizations. The interaction of managers in dealing with others (both inside and outside the organization) is emphasized. Topics will include the new employment contract, the role of change, diversity, creative problem solving, and the fall of the command and control manager in changing organizational structures. While lectures are utilized to present basic information, this course is designed to be highly interactive. Experiential exercises, cases, and class discussions are used extensively. This course requires full participation by each student in the learning experience.
