MGMT 8858 Special Topics: Leadership (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This PhD seminar explores theoretical and empirical approaches to leadership in organization studies with an emphasis on the connection between theories and empirics. The course examines leadership at the micro, meso, and macro levels by examining work that addresses leadership styles, attributes, and orientations; leadership-in-situ (situational, organizational, and contingent views of leadership); and leadership in broader contexts of history, culture, and time. The course emphasizes a social-psychological approach, looking at leadership in terms of the context in which it occurs rather than the individual leader. Students are required to complete a major paper on leadership for the course.
