ADM 4396 X - Seminar in Administration: Managing Through COVID (David Delcorde)
This seminar in applied management will consider the effect of the COVID pandemic on “management”. In addition to exploring COVID’s impact on certain functions of management, transversing themes such as Business, Government and Civil Society, Stakeholders, Globalization & Multiculturalism, and Ethics will be considered.
Students will work in teams of two assessing five case studies selected from the accompanying case book. Each case will be introduced to the full seminar group via Teams meeting. Following this introduction, the student teams will meet on their own to discuss and develop ideas. After a one-week period, the full seminar group reconvenes via Teams and each team will briefly discuss their ideas and potential suggestions. A written report from each team will be due loaded on Brightspace 48 hours following this full seminar group discussion. Following the evaluation of each assignment, feedback on top observations will be provided.
