Several Tuck courses explore the intersection of business and government, and work is underway to expand the offerings in this area. Here are the courses, that touch on the business-government theme, taught by CGBG affiliated faculty in 2014-2015:
LEADERSHIP IN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY taught by Professor Matthew J. Slaughter
This popular course for second-year students challenges them to imagine being leaders of global companies faced with national governments that have deep connections to the business—connections that are often rooted in government wariness, not support, of the private sector. Using the framework of Congressional testimony, students work to develop their opinions and practice their ability to deliver a compelling and dynamic story. Professor Slaughter offered three sections of this course in the fall of 2014. Sections filled quickly; 199 students registered for this class in 2014.
THE CEO EXPERIENCE taught by CGBG Senior Fellow John Lynch
This course explores the similarities and differences between being CEO in the private sector versus the public sector. According to Lynch, too often leaders from one sector think they are well equipped to lead in the other without appreciating some critical differences. Governor Lynch offered three sections of this class over the fall and spring terms. Sections filled quickly; 199 students registered for this class in 2014-2015.
THE ARRHYTHMIA OF FINANCE taught by CGBG Senior Fellow Peter Fisher
“Arrhythmia” aims to help students develop a framework for thinking about the sources of volatility in financial asset prices. Peter Fisher offered one section of this course in the spring; 37 students registered for this class in 2015.
BUSINESS AND SOCIETY taught by CGBG Senior Fellow Curt Welling
This course is designed to give students an integrated perspective on the unique roles which government and business play in society, the sources of authority for, and limits to, those responsibilities, and the ways in which the traditional roles are being questioned and changed. Curt Welling offered one section of this course in the winter and one in the spring of 2015; 83 students registered for this class in 2015.
