The Leadership Journey is a set of four modules that prepares students for leadership roles by providing experiential learning as well as evidence-based content on leadership, communication, teamwork, and diversity. LSM students complete this journey by taking two 0.5 CU modules in the first two years (WH 101 and WH 201), and also through the leadership and group dynamics instruction provided in the LSM Proseminar (LSMP 121) and the LSM Capstone (LSMP 421).
Environment of Business
Students must take a course in each of the following categories:
• Global Economy, Business, and Society (1 CU): For LSM students, this course can also count toward the Business Breadth requirement.
• Technology, Innovation, and Analytics (1 CU): This requirement is satisfied by the LSMP 421 Capstone course.
Business Depth & Breadth
The introductory business courses set the stage for concentrations, for which students take 4 courses in the area of business study that interests them most. These are upper-level courses that deepen the knowledge students have gained from their “Business Fundamentals.”
Students also expand their business education by completing 3 “Business Breadth” courses: three classes from three different business departments. No courses from the same department as a student’s business concentration may count toward the Business Breadth requirement. LSMP 121 counts as one of these Business Breadth courses; students must complete two others to finish the requirement; one of those courses can also be used to fulfill the Global Economy, Business, and Society requirement.
Cross Cultural Perspectives and General Education
LSM students satisfy Wharton’s General Education and Cross Cultural Perspectives requirements in completing their Foundational Approaches and Sector requirements in the College.
