This course, which is open to students in the Honors Program, helps participants develop a deeper understanding of their personal responsibility as a leader of tomorrow. What contribution am I making to society as a business leader of tomorrow? How can I put my talents and abilities as a business student to good use? This course is designed to help answer these central economic questions of our time through exchanges with business leaders who already bear leadership responsibility, through creative interdisciplinary impulses, via classroom teaching sessions, and by actually engaging in projects designed to practice managerial responsibility.
After taking this course, students will have started to develop a personal framework that captures their personal responsibility as a business leader of tomorrow. Students will acquire a deeper understanding about the relationship between personal responsibility, responsibility as a business leader, and responsibility for society. Students will have acquired insights from business leaders, business professors and others into what it actually means to lead responsibly. After taking this course, students will have enhanced their ability to analyze and evaluate the impact of managerial decisions on society. Students will have developed skills to implement projects that reflect responsible leadership.
