MPHM 500 - Ethics & Leadership in Hosp
In the ever-evolving and global hospitality industry, self-reflection and recognition of one’s values, conduct, and consideration for others often make the difference between those leaders who are successful and those who are not. At the core of Georgetown University’s Jesuit foundations, the notion of cura personalis (“care for the whole person”) guides our mission to ensure that graduates exude not only academic excellence, but also the qualities exemplified by great leaders who make decisions and lead in an ethical manner. This foundational course sets the tone for the overall Hospitality Management program, in which students explore their existing individual assumptions, build foundational principles, and commit to their own moral compass in relation to the codes of conduct, core values, and best practices endemic to the professional world. Students will demonstrate their application of ethical practices and link those principles to a decision-making framework steeped in leadership and management.
 
Students will embark upon collaborative projects developing their ethical decision-making skills and analyze how those skills lead to better and more effective managerial competencies. Topics include: ethical conduct in the international business context, ethical models of leadership, reasoning in managerial situations, communication and influence skills, and collaborative teaming.

Students must pass this core course with a grade of "B" (3.00) or better for it to count towards graduation requirements.
