Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
The core concepts and content of MGT 3201 are not proposed to change with this bulletin change. However, the pedagogy will be modified to include a moderate level of experiential learning through field work in order to allow the concepts to come alive. As a result, we are interested in having both the title and the bulletin description reflect this modification to pedagogy while preserving the core content of the course
Title: Leadership in Action (or, if necessary, Leadership in Action and in Theory)
