COMM 349/549 Leadership
​Section Number 88​
​Credits ​3
​Description With unprecedented natural disasters, financial and organizational blunders, corporate, collegiate, and political scandals, economic crisis, and international unrest, there is a growing demand for effective, ethical, and capable leaders. But what does it really mean to be a leader? What is your personal leadership style? What do leaders and managers share in common and what makes them different? How do leaders effectively create a vision, overcome obstacles, and manage conflict? How do ethics, gender, and situation impact the choices leaders make? To answer these and many other questions, this course will review traditional and contemporary leadership models, principles, best practices, and theories. As a fully web-based course, both undergraduate and graduate-level students can take this class anywhere they have access to the web. This makes this course a convenient option for students with summer internships, vacation plans, or work committments. Assigned textbook chapters will be enriched through online videos and podcasts featuring top leadership thinkers and practioners. Graduate students will follow a supplemental curriculum using a graduate-level testbook and peer reviewed journal readings to provide added interest, discussion, and insight to their study of this topic.
