The course aims to create an understanding of leadership, negotiation, and decision-making, with a focus on the individual leader and his or her actions. Both the development of different traditional perspectives on leadership and contemporary and critical perspectives are central to this course. The student should develop an understanding of the relationship between decision-making, negotiation strategies and how a leader is perceived. Ethics and power are important aspects in this course.
