BUS 501: High Performance Management Leadership and Communication

The syllabus is provided to help you in practicing good time management skills during the quarter. This site will contain all the lecture notes covered in the course for the Spring 2000 MBA course, BUS501. Since the course is taught during the Spring Quarter by Dr. Christopher, the notes will be broken down into three separate sections. The notes can be reviewed under the following headings: Leadership, Teamwork, and Communication.

Each class section, Dr. Christopher will rotate the lectures so each area of specialty is covered. As indicated in the course syllabus, each lecture will also include a variety of exercises, simulations, and case studies to discuss, role play, and complete within the assigned groups.

Every week new lecture materials will be added to this site. If you have any questions concerning the materials presented here, please contact Dr. Christopher via email.
