Leadership Strategy & Decision Making
This advanced course for students in the Executive Master program will examine how leaders formulate coherent and effective strategies for policy-making in a complex and unpredictable environment. Readings and discussions will concentrate on planning, organization, persuasion, and adaptation to changing local, national, and international pressures. The course will focus on case studies in leadership, as well as broader studies of strategic decision-making in the modern world. Students should gain a greater appreciation for what it means to be an effective strategist, policy-maker, and agenda-setter. They should also acquire a certain humility about the difficulties involved with fulfilling these often inhuman tasks.
