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)
