BADM 752 - Commrcl Approach to PublicSctr
In the 21st Century and the Digital Economy, integration between the public and private sectors continues to deepen. Public sector topics and challenges now require a “whole of society” or “whole of economy” approach to correctly assessing the situation, recommending strategies & tactics for meaningful advancement, and implementing concrete solutions to address challenges. The 4th Industrial Revolution has caused all organizations (public and private) to rethink how technology, the virtual evaporation of borders due to the internet, and the workforce of the future affect their mission. These realities are compounded at an unprecedented scale when considered for public policy challenges. Leaders of NGOs, non-profit organizations, government programs are increasingly incorporating commercial approaches, skillsets, and indeed “MBA-type” practitioners to successfully manage their mission; as well, MBA students are seeking ways to apply their education and training to public policy challenges so that they can contribute to the collective good. This 1.5 credit intensive learning experience (ILE) course aims to answer this fundamental question: How can we manage public sector projects with commercial approaches? Put another way, How can we apply our MBA skills and commercial techniques to tackle topics of public interest? Students include those who are interested in consulting, corporate social responsibility, serving NGOs and non-profit organizations, or further exploring how their “MBA can make an impact” beyond once-traditional career paths including finance, investment banking, and venture capital.
