Through the use of human resource foundational concepts, examination of contemporary and classic leadership theories, investigation of successful leadership behaviors across a wide range of environments, application of leadership principles to create value, and discovery of the strengths and development needs of their personal leadership style, students will develop the skills to lead their organizations to new levels of performance.
