GBUS 8443: Second-Year Coaching and Career Development
This course gives second-year students an opportunity to learn the theory of effective mentoring and career coaching in the workplace and to apply it to real-life, professional-level discussions with first-year students in the MBA Career Development process. The course will prepare students to successfully meet the challenges of providing career counseling and direction to others for achieving superior performance in the workplace. Second-year coaches will study, practice, and reflect upon all aspects of coaching, mentoring, and counseling that fall within the scope of managerial responsibilities common to MBAs at various leadership levels. The course, which runs from August through March, will begin in a classroom setting where the theoretical aspects of coaching will be introduced and explored. Subsequent training sessions will be interspersed with hands-on application of the concepts with assigned first-year students. Throughout the course, direction and oversight will be provided by Career Development Center consultants both individually and in small groups with other coaches.
