Authors: Hardy, C., Maguire, S. Publication: Academy of Management Review Abstract:
The environmentalists and green groups at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, which starts today in Paris, will inevitably call for better leadership on sustainability issues. They will not have to travel far to find those willing to teach them. Green topics become the norm The Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University, Montreal, “normalised” the climate-change issue as a core topic a long time ago, says Steve Maguire, director of the school’s institute for integrated management.
Bringing ‘integrated management’ to students across McGill through new Integrated Management Essentials courses
In September 2015, MDIIM launched the first of two new courses for undergraduate non-management students: INTG 201 (Integrated Management Essentials 1) & INTG 202 (Integrated Management Essentials 2). The courses present the essentials of management (accounting, finance, information systems, marketing, operations, organizational behaviour and strategy) using an integrated approach, highlighting how organizations function as a whole and the importance of being able to work across functional and organizational boundaries.
The most important challenges faced by society and managers in contemporary organizations, be they private, public or not-for-profit, are closely related. They do not respect disciplinary boundaries and cannot be adequately tackled with knowledge from just one management function or university faculty. The Marcel Desautels Institute for Integrated Management (MDIIM)’s mandate is to address these challenges by developing an integrated approach to management - one that breaks down disciplinary barriers, embraces multiple perspectives and encourages holistic thinking about organizations.
Full-time Desautels students are invited to apply to the 2015-16 MDIIM Student Associates Program. Each fall, a select few MBA and BCom students receive an award of $5,000 and become formally affiliated with MDIIM for a one-year term.
MDIIM Associate Director, Professor Saku Mantere, was recently awarded the 2015 Best Published Paper in Organization and Management Theory for his paper "The contraction of meaning: The combined effect of communication, emotions and materiality on sensemaking in the Stockwell shooting” with co-authors Joep P. Cornelissen and Eero Vaara. Click here to view the award winning paper.
Per Olsson, Tamer Boyaci, and Xu Li join faculty as professors in areas of accounting, operations management, and strategy. Read full article: Mittelstand, August 6, 2015
