Given that most top business school programs recruit an exceptionally diverse student body—who vary greatly in their previous work experiences, learning objectives, and future career goals—professors at business schools face the unique challenge of developing courses that meet these needs.

Power and Politics,
Professors Sameer Srivastava
and Cameron Anderson

SPRING 2014, SPRING 2015, FALL 2015, SPRING 2016, FALL 2016, FALL 2017

Course Description:
This course is about the art and science of influence in organizations. Many people are ambivalent, if not disdainful, of those who seek to wield power and influence at work. Yet organizations are fundamentally political entities, and the ability to diagnose and navigate organizational politics is critical for personal and organizational success. Even those who consider themselves “apolitical” can sometimes get drawn into a political vortex.  All aspiring leaders therefore stand to benefit from developing greater political acumen.

The Social, Political, and Ethical Environment of Business,
Professor Alan Ross

SPRING 2011, FALL 2011, SPRING 2012

Course Description:
This is a survey course on the political, social, and ethical environment of business. It is designed to give students insight into complex and controversial social issues and public policy problems that complicate the task of managing American business. Topics covered include the historical development of American business, America’s competitiveness problems, and the debates over business ethics, corporate social responsibility, corporate governance and government regulation of business.  We will study and consider the implications of several of the most perplexing paradoxes facing American business managers today: the conflict between our faith in a free market and our desire for regulations providing consumer and environmental protection; the contradiction between the historical success of American business and our growing competitiveness problems; and our confusion over how best to manage business given the conflicting demand from shareholder and stakeholder groups with incompatible short- and long-term interests.
