MGMT 5000.03 Management Without Borders

Note: for the most up-to-date course description please view the graduate academic calendar.

This course places management in its broadest context and helps students from diverse disciplines explore the complex social, economic, ecological, political and technological forces shaping 21st century leadership in the public, private and non-profit sectors. The course is characterized by a strong emphasis on teamwork and effective problem solving in inter-professional environments.

The major focus of the course is the MWB group project.  Interdisciplinary teams of 5 students will spend the semester working on live projects hosted by organizations from across Nova Scotia. The primary goals of the projects are for the student groups to provide value to the host organization and for the host organization to contribute to the professional and academic development of the students. Additionally, these projects are intended to provide students with the opportunity to experience the complexities of an inter-professional work environment; develop / hone tools and skill sets that are part of various professional disciplines; gain a greater understanding of the issues at hand when organizations work to integrate the seemingly disparate worlds of governance, business, environment and society; and develop leadership and teamwork skills that can be transferred to future work experiences. Weekly tutorial sessions provide student groups with time to consult with faculty coaches, teaching assistants and project groups.

Weekly plenary sessions are synergistically linked to the group projects. The first few plenary sessions of the semester are designed to launches the class and cover key topics related to MWB group projects. The first teaching module focuses on relevant management theory in areas such as collaboration, conflict management, stakeholder engagement and managing innovation and creativity. The second module aims to examine how the aforementioned management theories play out in the context of complex, cross-boundary issues. Plenary lectures are taught by MWB faculty members and guest speakers.
