Topics include contemporary theories of control, motivation and persuasive communications, and how to successfully put those theories into practice in diverse work environments.

Through the lens of behavioral and human psychological theories, students examine the role and responsibility of the business leader in relation to employee and peer self-efficacy, group dynamics and workplace culture.
This course provides an in-depth examination of measurement of human capital based on a nonlinear, integrated approach, accounting for elements that balance ROI metrics with qualitative assessments.

This course enhances the learner’s analytical, collaborative and communication skills through the study group approach to examination of case studies in business ethics and law.
