Subject outline

In this subject you will explore the evolving role of business in society through the lens of responsible leadership. Taking a multi-level perspective, you will critically analyse the intersection of social responsibility with a range of approaches to leadership, including stakeholder theory and shared leadership. Working individually and with other students you will evaluate contemporary organisational leaders and yourself against leadership frameworks; and you will critically reflect on how organisations, leaders, and managers can more effectively 'avoid harm' and 'do good'.
