SKU: CVC 304

Course 304 - Management and Leadership (3 credits) 

The purpose of Leadership and Management at City Vision University is to build the student’s capacity to be an authentic leader and an effective manager for profit and non-profit organizations across all sectors including corporate, business, entrepreneurial, civic, and religious. This course is designed to resource the student’s journey of personal leadership development and to learn how to motivate and inspire others in their organization to be authentic leaders, too. Students will reflect on their own professional leadership experiences, read case studies of successful business leaders, interact with fellow classmates and instructors, and then synthesize their own philosophy and practice of leadership in their final project. Successful students will actively participate and share in class forum discussions, learn theory and practice, and reflect on social, political, religious and other dynamics as organizations solve problems, face critical challenges, and serve local and global communities.

Professor: Bill Manduca
