Leadership and Organizational Change Specialization - PhD in Management

Leadership and Organizational Change

This specialization challenges you to think critically about conventional organizations and explore new ideas about leadership and change. You will develop alternative conceptualizations of management, understand what a socially conscious leader is, and create 21st-century leadership practices. Concerns about effective organization-building will be balanced by the understanding that a socially responsible leader also strives to create an environment beneficial to employees in increasingly cross-cultural work environments.
