University of Michigan - Curriculum & Courses

Michigan Global Leadership and Social Change Institute

  • Top Michigan Global Leadership and Social Change Institute
    • Michigan Global Leadership and Social Change:  Worldwide connectivity and rapidly evolving social media and technology have quickly redefined human interaction and organizational structure. As a result, leadership skills have taken on a transnational, global dimension. Effective leaders must now be technologically savvy and master skills that encompass local, national, and international issues, in order to influence organizational and social change.

      This institute is designed to provide foundational knowledge, skills, and practical tools to create future leaders in business, education, and beyond. The curriculum provides insight into organizational structure and change, ethical practices, and business and leadership etiquette. Apply the skill sets you learn in the institute to your home communities, in your schools, and your future.

      Morning Course: Leadership and Management for the 21st Century
      An organization can change and transform based on the style, strategies, and ethics of its leader. Do you know the difference between leadership and management? Explore strategies to run a successful organization, address the cultural, moral, and ethical dilemmas facing leaders today, learn how to foster creativity and productivity within the workplace, and bring about positive change.

      In groups, analyze case studies outlining leadership theories and styles, management roles, organizational structures, business ethics and standards, communication and power, and gender and culture in leadership. This class will include lecture and discussion components.

      Afternoon Course: Global Leadership Skills and Agents of Social Change
      The afternoon course combines pertinent discussions, site-visits to cutting edge companies and organizations, and meaningful, relevant guest speakers who personify strong leadership and bring about social change. Learn and implement global leadership skills in the rapidly changing world of entrepreneurship, non-profits, social media, and global communications. Effective leaders of today must not only be able to inspire, but they must also be able to navigate the fluid realms of social responsibility, sustainability, technology, and business/personal ethics in a diverse global economy.

      Reexamine the leadership concepts you studied in the morning course, and learn to apply those principles using skills such as operational communications, organizational ideologies, critical writing and thinking, and action planning. Translate your theoretical knowledge into practical use by teaming-up with other participants for collaborative group work. Create organizational leadership plans that are applicable in addressing significant societal and managerial topics and present your findings.

      Meet with business and organizational leaders through in-class appearances and off-campus site-visits. These site visits and guest speakers may include a Social Media Exec., CEOs, business owners or entrepreneurs, department heads at the University of Michigan, leaders in the greater Ann Arbor and Detroit community, as well as Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation and Google.

      This institute meets daily, morning and afternoon. Due to the time commitment involved with this program, no other classes may be taken in conjunction with the Global Leadership and Social Change Institute.

      Available for both 3 and 2 week sessions
