Leadership in the Global Economy (Elective Course)
Today the world continues to struggle with the aftermath of the World Financial Crisis. This crisis helped create deep recessions and high unemployment in most of the world’s advanced economies. Economic recovery has taken hold in most of them, but that road is long and uneven. Interwoven as cause and effect with these many policy challenges is the ongoing World Financial Crisis. Governments undertook historic efforts to arrest the Crisis. One of the most striking developments of the World Financial Crisis—one whose causes and consequences will take years to fully understand—has been the sharp expansion of the role of national governments in global business. This dynamic, then, presents a central question for LGE: how will you lead global companies when national governments have so many more connections to your business—connections that often spring from government wariness, not support, of the private sector?
In Leadership in the Global Economy, each student works to develop his or her own answers to this question by developing Teachable Points of View regarding current global business topics such as the rise of the BRIC countries and support for strategic industries. Class sessions are structured as mock Congressional hearings in which students prepare, debate, and defend CEO testimonies.
For teaching Leadership in the Global Economy, Dean Slaughter was awarded the Class of 2011 Teaching Excellence Award. In fall of 2013, over 200 second-year Tuck students plan to take this course.
At Tuck, Dean Slaughter is involved in a number of Executive Education programs. He is faculty co-director of Tuck’s flagship international program, Global Leadership 2020.
