MGT 4965 Leadership Development and Entrepreneurial Applications
3.0 Hours; 3.0 Credits

This online course is designed to provide an environment for developing entrepreneurial leadership skills in a project-based learning setting. The core course component will be Leadership Consulting Teams, which will include 3-5 students. Each team will focus on identifying a leadership related problem in their community including emerging enterprises of all types and varieties such as businesses, not-for-profits, and governments. The consulting teams will analyze their problems and prepare viable solutions. Each group will work closely with the instructor who will assist in each group?s project work. After completion of the course, the projects will be presented at a CUNY-wide competitive event sponsored by the CUNY Institute for Virtual Enterprise (www.ive.cuny.edu). Additionally, there will be weekly leadership readings, which will serve as interacting-discussion starters for an ongoing online dialogue about leadership, teamwork, leadership research, and case studies, particularly from the viewpoint of entrepreneurship.
