Uploaded a Course Syllabus
This course is currently being offered as a “Special Topic” under the course number HOL 8100. This course is now considered a core part of the curriculum for the Executive Leadership Doctoral Program. Because of this, we would like to create its own course number so that the HOL 8100 course number can be reserved for true “Special Topics” like pilot courses, guest lecturers, etc.
