Thinking (A)broad: Leading for Global Social Enterprise


Program Overview

This program is a 4-credit business elective offered in spring term 2018 that begins with an 8 day Intensive Course Abroad to The Netherlands, followed by online work and bi-weekly on-campus class meetings Wednesdays 4:00-6:00pm. The course will include a study of leadership theory and practice, and team roles and dynamics, viewed from a global perspective, with reflection and goal setting individually using styles, examples and experiences. It will include a hands on experiential consulting-based project collaboratively with social enterprises in the Netherlands and is hosted by The Knowmads Business School. Faculty and students from Leeds University (UK) will also be joining the program in the Netherlands, creating a multi-dimensional, culturally engaging learning experience.
