About the Course

Course Description
Leadership as the fundamental mode of organization and cooperation in groups has always been a popular subject. Yet, what constitutes “good”, “effective”, or “best practice” leadership changed significantly through time. In this course, students will gain an insight into the leadership literature with a particular emphasis on the recent developments in the field. The course is designed to introduce the main approaches to leadership in the context of how they inform current best practices. Through case-studies, group exercises, simulations and application of leadership assessment tools, the course will help students to ground and utilize leadership theories in real world.

 

Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, students will have theoretical and practical knowledge about a variety of leadership approaches including their advantages and disadvantages in different contexts. Students will also be able to identify and evaluate these leadership approaches in real life cases.

 

Class Meetings
Class meetings will consist of the introduction of the corresponding topic by the instructor, structured discussion on its case-studies and related questionnaire, and group discussion on how it fits in the literature and applies to leadership examples. Students are required to review the assigned material before the class and expected to adopt a critical approach in class discussions, focusing on identifying possible advantages and disadvantages of the approach in question.
