MENT 5894 – Emotional Intelligence at Work

Scheduled to run in Winter 2024
Emotions are pervasive in organizations and everyday life and profoundly influence our decisions, relationships, and outcomes. In this course, we integrate theory and research in psychology, behavioral economics, and decision-making to more fully understand the characteristics and consequences of emotions in negotiations, organizations, and interpersonal interactions. In this process, the course will help you to develop your emotional intelligence and teach you how to harness the power of your emotions and those of others.

BADM 5894 – AI for Managers

Scheduled to run in Spring 2024
The primary objective of this course is to teach students a wide range of AI techniques and how they can be applied to the challenges and opportunities that firms face. AI techniques such as language models, image processing, and document classification are becoming prominent in firms' pricing models, sales forecasts, product creation, market analysis, and customer service. Since many executives today would like to consider adopting AI for their firms, but lack internal expertise in this relatively new field, this course emphasizes the viewpoint of a manager or consultant who must understand and offer advice on a wide range of AI topics relevant to a variety of business needs.
