INBM 300 Profiles in Leadership
Why are some leaders more effective than others? How do accomplished leaders from Dickinson’s alumni community understand their success? What are the most important challenges today’s leaders need to confront? This course combines weekly presentations by some of Dickinson’s most distinguished alumni with in-depth discussion on many contemporary leadership issues. The first class each week will center on alumni presentations about their civic and professional leadership experiences, allowing substantial time for Q&A. The second will focus on the review of relevant issues in the study of leadership. Students’ coursework will include a casebook of one-page reflections on our guests' presentations, an annotated bibliography on a leadership issue of their choice (submitted at mid-semester), and a final project in which students analyze a significant issue or case study from the course through the disciplinary lens of their major.
