MGMT 422 Socio-Cultural and Institutional Perspectives on the Family Business
This course introduces the participants to concepts and skills related to entrepreneurship, leadership and management of the family business. Theory- related content combined with reflective teaching methods provides with an opportunity to increase participants’ understanding of family business theory and practice with a particular focus on social, cultural, institutional and affective perspectives. Thus, this module aims to balance theory and practice by symetrically attending to the ‘family’ and ‘business’ domains as well as their relationship from social, cultural and entrepreneurial perspectives. İn delivering the course, we will also invite visiting speakers to the classroom. Guest lectures delivered by established practitioners in their fields will bring real life observations into classroom setting and help to bridge theoretical insights with practical wisdom and experiences. There will be seminars following the completion of major family business perspectives. In seminars, lecturers are essentially facilitators and advisors who encourage participants to take gradual charge of their own learning experiences. In lectures, in addition to the theoretical underpinning of family business, you will have an opportunity to debate the issues and perspectives emerging from theory and practice of leadership. The assignments will help you to continuously reflect upon what has been learned through lectures and seminars and accumulate knowledge on the subject area The teaching team will provide ongoing support with scheduled assessment briefs for large groups as well as in the format of one-2-one meetings.
