MGT 5000.0 (49457)- Business Ethics

Course Description: 

The course examines the ethical issues confronting contemporary managers by exploring various units of analysis, judgment and action- from the individual to the group, the organization and its culture, to the industry, society, the professions, and social & legal institutions. Multiple modes of inquiry and practice for each level of analysis, including behavioral, ethics, and social neuroscience approaches will be examined. The course will equip you to become a lifelong learner of business ethics by applying course concepts to our own past ethical failures and current ethical challenges.

MKT 5000.0 (48176)- Special Topics in Marketing: Digital Marketing

Course Description:

While the world of "digital" is constantly changing, professional marketers are constantly trying to grasp how to strategically utilize digital tools to foster consumer community, limit crisis, and ultimately solidify brands in the consumer-empowered paradigm. This course will examine the shift of power from the boardroom to the living room through media such as blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and others with the goal of evaluating platforms against the organization's marketing goals and objectives. In addition, the course material will explore the overall connection of other digital platforms such as mobile, search engine and email. This course will provide not only a theoretical basis for evaluating engagement activities but also a practical experience of the tools used by professional marketers today.

 

MKT 5000.02 (49458)-Innovation

Course Description: 

Research on management competencies consistently shows that the ability to cultivate innovation ranks among the top five competencies determining the promotion and success or failure of mid and senior-level individual contributors, managers, and senior leaders. It is also one of the hardest to learn management competencies. Unsurprisingly, the failure to cultivate innovation accounts for half of the factors causing firms to stall in their revenue growth. This course introduces the dominant theories, models, frameworks, and concepts of business innovation. Students learn the theory side of innovation from course readings, gamified mobile learning, on-line discussions and exercises and through frequent, low-stakes testing. Students learn the practice of innovation from the "fuzzy front-end" of discovery and ideation through to prototyping and pitching for funding by working on innovation projects of their own passion and purpose.
