Business Administration SL Course

June 21, 2016

Course Description

This service leadership course is designed to blend academic study with community service (through service-learning). In this course the students will form consulting teams to serve non-profit organizations by applying business concepts and skills to mutually agreed-upon projects. In this approach, all parties to the arrangement are seen as learners and teachers as well as servers and served. Dealing with issues related to service projects, reflection, and evaluation will be essential elements of the course.


This is not a traditional lecture course. Since the course is designed to be taken by students during their Senior year, the format is that of a seminar in which everyone must actively participate in each class session. The professor serves as a facilitator, not lecturer. This class is a learning community; therefore you are expected to come to class prepared, willing and ready to contribute to the growth of the community. Due to the fact that you will be part of a consulting team to an external organization, you are expected to perform with the highest level of professionalism. Furthermore, you will be expected to be responsible – not only in terms of time, communication, course work, and team contribution, but in taking initiative. If you cannot perform to the level of responsibility necessary and expected in this course, your grade will reflect this.
