MG 452 - Power and Influence

(3.00 cr.)

Identifies sources of power and influence and analyzes the use of power to influence and achieve personal and organizational goals. Personality and experience often lead to the differences in interpretations of how power is used in organizations. Often new employees look to their own supervisors to shelter them from organizational politics and then the employees themselves become the pawns of political power. As organizations are political entities, this course analyzes choices regarding how objectives and strategies are made primarily on the basis of who has power and how that power is used.

Prerequisite: MG 201  or BH 201 , and 60 credits.
