PERSONAL LEADERSHIP – by Dr. Vinh Q. Nguyen, Associate Professor of Business Administration and Economics: Great leaders are first and foremost great at leading themselves. Personal leadership is the leadership of the self and this is the foundation of successful leadership. Peter Drucker, the well-known expert and founder of modern management, said that self-leadership is the only leadership that is going to matter in the 21st century. If a person cannot lead himself or herself, he/she then will be led by other people. This course will discuss the art and science of personal leadership. Students will study various contemporary theories of leadership and read stories and case studies on this subject. The objective of the course is to help students have an awareness and understanding of the keys to successful self-leadership. With these keys, students will be able to develop themselves to become great leaders.
NEWTONIAN PHYSICS – by Dr. James Wetzel, Assistant Professor of Physics: The scientific revolution started with Sir Isaac Newton’s development of classical mechanics in 17th century. In this course the students are going to a journey that will cover classical physics until quantum era. Topics will include kinematics, dynamics, thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism, light, and astronomy. There will also be daily laboratory sessions to improve our conceptual understanding with hands-on exercises.
