Management Papers

 

To be successful in a changing global economy, managers must view the total enterprise and understand the forces shaping the firm’s direction, policies, and goals and at the same time exercise personal leadership in managing employees.

Wharton’s Management Department applies basic social science disciplines and research methods to these management and leadership problems in the public and private sectors.
