LaPD Series:

BUSI 1200, Strategy First, is designed to create enthusiasm for the study of business and to provide a foundation for personal and professional leadership development for first year business students. Using Business Week as the textbook, students examine strategy motives and fundamental business concepts that drive companies to operate as they do.

BUSI 2200, Experiential Leadership, builds practical applied team and interpersonal skills in a team environment. Students participate in team-based projects where an emphasis is placed on understanding the stages of team development.

BUSI 3200, Professional Development and Ethical Leadership, is the junior year course that emphasizes developing a personal brand while behaving in a professional manner. Students participate in a practice interview and an etiquette dinner to reinforce the networking and etiquette skills that are discussed in class.

The College of Business’ Leadership and Professional Development (LaPD) curriculum culminates with the BUSI 4200, Leadership Capstone course. Building from skills developed in the previous LaPD courses, as well pulling from their core and concentration coursework, students analyze the different characteristics of leaders presented during class discussions. Students also engage in different introspective activities to help define their own leadership philosophy.
