MBA in Management of Information Technology Curriculum & Schedule

 Summer Featured Courses

Summer I

MGMT 597 - Special Topics:  Developing Global Leaders: European Management Perspectives
Prerequisite: None. The increase in cultural diversity and globalization in business require managers to develop cross-cultural competence. This course develops students' global understanding for working, following, and leading in European organizations. This course will help managers and organizational leaders make sense of French, German, Swiss, and other European cultures in order to prepare global leaders for work in highly diverse, intercultural environments. It explores how human resource management processes and organizational dynamics in European countries such as France, Germany and Switzerland differ from practices in the United States. The goal is to better understand how culture impacts the whole management process when working in Europe. Several case studies - describing both successful and unsuccessful practices - will be presented.

All entering students are required to take MGMT 501. A series of Prerequisite, Core, and Skills courses is required to give all MBA students a common body of knowledge. Students may be exempt from up to 15 credits of Core and Skills courses, depending on previous background.
