MBA Program

Leadership in the Global Economy (Elective Course)
One of the most striking developments of the World Financial Crisis has been the sharp escalation of the government’s role in business. For business leaders, government is now much more factor in strategic planning. And many CEOs and boards of directors are finding that government leaders and their citizens are often unsure of their motives and consequences. This dynamic presents a central question for LGE: how will executives lead companies when countries have so many more connections to business—connections that often spring from government wariness, not support, of the private sector? In this mini-course, each student works to develop his or her own answers to this question by developing Teachable Points of View regarding current global business topics that include the rise of the BRIC countries and support for “strategic industries.” Class sessions are structured as mock Congressional hearings in which students prepare, debate, and defend CEO testimonies.
