This is a 3-credit hybrid course, almost all online, in a somewhat abbreviated semester. It requires you to read three books, but learn enough about as many as 32 books to sound knowledgeable if someone mentions them. The first two books are assigned for everyone: Made to Stick, by Chip and Dan Heath, and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, by Marshall Goldsmith. Please plan to buy or borrow them. I’ll randomly assign to each person in the class a third book that is unique to you, but those books will be lent to you at our first class session. You may choose to switch your unique/assigned book with any “alternate” if you wish, as long as you do so on the first night of class. Note that this is a one-year MBA program; tuition and fees should be understood in this context. This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database. The database explores the use of literature by schools of professional education in North America. It forms part of a larger project titled Post-Discipline: Literature, Professionalism, and the Crisis of the Humanities, led by Dr Merve Emre with the assistance of Dr Hayley G. Toth. You can find more information about the project at Data was collected and accurate in 2021/22.
