MGMT 4310 - The Management Practices of Great Organizations
Focuses on a wide range of management practices, many of which are “radical” and represent organizations that “dare to be different.” The course uses many teaching approaches, including case studies, class exercises, and “competitions” that require students—and seek to increase their ability—to debate, present, think on their feet, and ask tough questions. Some organizations seem “to work”; they provide high-quality products and services, they treat their employees with respect, they behave ethically, they are strong financially, and the like. The key question of this course is “How do they do it; i.e., why do they work so well?” Students study and debate the criteria for a great organization in order to answer this question. Prereq. COOP 3945 and junior or senior standing; business majors and combined majors only.
