PADM 5114 - Organizational Design, Change, and Leadership


(KCM-HE, SBA-HE)      
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

L. Cabrera, D. Cabrera.

This course will provide MPA students with a graduate-level overview of key principles and techniques in applying systems thinking to organizational leadership, change and design in public and nonprofit contexts. CIPA is a graduate program that prepares students for leadership positions in public and nonprofit service; although CIPA’s learning outcomes are still in progress, we expect mastery in three foundation areas (management/administration, economic analysis, quantitative techniques) followed by specialization in one of eight concentrations. This course, as it is structured, provides students with a range of applied methodologies and tools that are relevant across all MPA degree concentrations. Of particular note is the opportunity for students to present their original research at a public symposium/conference at the end of the semester.
