Teaching Method

The theoretical of the course consists of literature assignments, reports and directed discussion to develop the theoretical basis for international management & organizational development. The integrative part of the course follows the social learning perspective: skills are assessed, acknowledged, developed and applied in a carefully developed framework designed to resemble management training workshops. Self managed student work teams prepare and perform a variety of simulations designed to develop and evaluate transformational leadership, negotiation, motivation, performance appraisal, delegation, communication, conflict resolution and general task management skills. Students prepare self-assessments examining communication styles, personality, leadership, conflict styles, career goals, stress levels, and more. Students are confronted with situations taken from the real world cases and then compare their responses to actual management actions.
The course features lectures, class discussion, group activities, situational analysis and comparison, skills assessment and integrative experiential learning.
