MNP-5050 Organizational Management and Leadership in Public Service

This course presents a comprehensive, integrative, and practical focus on leadership and management. It is based upon a framework that analyzes leadership and management at different levels: individual leadership, team leadership, and organizational leadership. The course presents leadership and management theories/concepts that have emerged over the past several decades. In addition, students will survey contemporary perspectives on ethics, networking, coaching, organizational culture, diversity, learning organizations, strategic leadership, and crisis leadership. Special attention will be paid on examining the role that leaders play in identifying and implementing change in organizations.

Note: This course builds upon MNP-5020: Leadership and Management in Public Service, although that course is not a prerequisite to MNP-5050. While there is some overlap in content between the two, MNP-505 has a far greater emphasis on application and skill development than MNP-5020.
