MSM’s full-time MBA students complete course on Leadership and Organizational Behavior via distance learning


Recently the MSM full-time MBA students followed the Leadership and Organizational Behavior course lectured by Dr. Stephanie Jones, Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior, via distance learning.

For MBA student Vaishali Bagada the course was very interactive and interesting. “My key learning outcomes are that I acquired the knowledge which qualities a leader should have. But also how a leader can transform its leadership style depending on the circumstances. Dr. Stephanie Jones is an enthusiastic teacher and motivates her students to get the most of each session.”

About the course
During the course the link between Leadership and Organizational Behavior became more and more clear to the students. The two topics constantly interact, in theory as well as in practice. After the course the students are able to understand, apply and critically evaluate the different aspects of Leadership and Organizational Behavior. The students learned more about the basics of leadership theories and practices but also how to apply leadership in crises and challenging situations. The students also learned how to critically evaluate the impact of the leader on the culture of the organization. The learning goals also included sustainable leadership and the importance of the roles of different team members.

The course consisted out of lectures, group assignments and group presentations and a guest lecture by Martin Tynan.
