BUS 249 - Business Leadership: A Business Perspective


Credits: 3
This course examines key concepts and principles of business leadership with an emphasis on how these principles were/are being applied by British leaders, both in and out of business. The course is constructed around key themes of leadership qualities which explore these qualities and their theoretical basis. These themes will be brought to life by examination of historical British leaders from Thomas Moore to Margaret Thatcher and Richard Branson who vividly manifested/manifest these qualities.  This will unfold in a series of ten modules spanning the 16th to 21st centuries, including both men and women, white and people of color, and involving leaders from the military, business, politics, religion, human rights and statecraft. Field trips to key locations in London and the vicinity will enrich the learning experience.
