New Online Course Focuses on Leading Through the Pandemic
For the upcoming academic term, Schulich will be introducing a first-of-its-kind interdisciplinary online course offering titled, “Leading Through the Pandemic: Insights From Individuals, Organizations, Governments, and Societies.”
Led by Ashwin Joshi, Associate Professor of Marketing and Director of Schulich’s MBA Program, this new Open Online Course (OOC) will adopt a similar approach as the School’s webinar series, Shaping the Post-Pandemic World, by bringing together the expertise of faculty members to provide students with important insights and lessons on the pandemic.
“Students will have the opportunity to learn important personal, organizational, and societal leadership lessons, engage with students across different programs and careers, and have their work showcased on the Schulich website,” says Professor Joshi.
The new course will be divided into five sessions, with each one led by two to three instructors from a variety of disciplines:
Module One: Learning from the Past and Understanding the Present
|Matthias Kipping||Russ Belk|
Module Two: Insights for Individuals
|Brent Lyons||Russ Belk||Winny Shen|
Module Three: Insights for Organizations
|Ellen Auster||David Johnston||Eileen Fischer|
Module Four: Insights for Governments and Economy
|Amin Mawani||Irene Henriques|
Module Five: Insights for Organizations and Society
|Jim Clayton||Dirk Matten|
Current students and alumni across ALL of the School’s degree programs (from BBA to PhD) will be able to enrol in this new course which runs over the Fall and Winter semesters. We WELCOME York University students from across all faculties to join this course. You will be able to register for this course (Participant option) on Monday, September 21st, 2020.
