MOB3505 Global Leadership Development
This Summer Institute is comprised of two courses about the world’s most intractable problems, and about conceptualizing ways to address them. You have chosen an auspicious moment to engage this topic, as the United Nations is currently shifting from its Millennium Development Goals to the new Sustainable Development Goals which will be launched in September 2015. Because Babson is part of the Champions Group of the UN Principles of Responsible Development Education (UN PRME), we have the opportunity to visit and to consult with this branch of the UN on how to translate the new SDGs so that they become relevant to business schools and business students. As such, our course has a certainty urgency and practicality to it that will be reflected in the coursework. And as a Summer Institute, we will travel to NYC to visit the UN, host exciting visitors who are leading in this space, and more!
In order to become a global leader, you must understand the context not only of the problems we face on a global level, but also of the partnerships among governments, businesses, NGOs, and concerned global citizens that are created in order to address them: this will be the topic in CVA2019. In order to consider ways to use entrepreneurial thought and action to address those problems, you must learn to clearly identify and scope opportunities, develop feasible and actionable plans to address the opportunities and be able to articulate those plans to various audiences, which will make up the work in MOB3505.
