AEM 5305 - Global Citizenship Seminar


     
Spring. 1 credit. S/U grades only (no audit).

Required for and limited to: students in the CEMS program.

K. Kniffin.

Through this two-day immersion seminar as part of the broader CEMS curriculum, students will learn and gain skills related to participating in (and leading) teams of diverse individuals. The seminar-and our classroom time-will be approached as a partnership. Questions will be posed regularly and frequently throughout the course to support learning from each other. The main themes for the two-day sessions are: What is leadership? How do organizations (mis)identify leaders? What is the difference between ascribed and achieved leadership? What are the benefits of teamwork (and why is it increasing in the workplace? How do effective teams operate? What skills are most helpful for successful team participation?

Outcome 1: Students will recognize how leadership and perceptions of leadership can impact organizations in both helpful and unhelpful ways.

Outcome 2: Students will gain an appreciation for the skills and approaches that have been demonstrated to be most effective among successful teams.

Outcome 3: Students will learn how to juxtapose lessons about how to lead in contemporary organizational settings alongside exemplars of leadership in pre-industrial communities.

Outcome 4: Students will engage with the “backstage” of academic debates and learn how to process original scientific literature.
