MGT16 – OPEN Section in Spring 2015 Quarter!


Deciding what class to take?  Stuck on a waitlist?

Consider MGT 16: Personal Ethics at Work on Mondays, 5:00-7:50 p.m. (1S114)

Section ID: 834026 (4 units)

This section of MGT 16 is taught by one of our newest instructors – Dr. Tricia Bertram Gallant. Dr. BG (as her students call her) is a dynamic, engaging professor who is passionate about student learning and about ethics. When you take MGT 16 with Dr. BG, you will not be sitting in a dry 3 hour lecture every week! Instead, you will be actively engaged in team-based learning, developing skills in ethical decision-making, communication, interpersonal, and teamwork. You will learn how to recognize ethical issues when you’re facing them, identify moral temptations from ethical dilemmas, make ethical decisions and act ethically, even in the world of work!

Past students have said that Dr. BG is a “fantastic Professor! She is funny and very engaging!” and “shows a lot of passion for the material she teaches, which is always nice to see in a professor. She cares for her student’s learning, and does her best to help anyone who needs it.” Students also comment that the class “is the best class I have taken at UCSD hands down!” and that it is a “Fairly simple course. Study and you will do well. Very relaxed team environment. A breath of fresh air from what normal business classes are.”

So, don’t hold off taking MGT 16 in another quarter or hoping for a spot to open up in one of the other MGT 16 sections. Sign up for MGT 16 (D00) on Monday nights, 5-7:50 p.m., this Spring 2015 and experience a one-of-a-kind learning opportunity at UC San Diego.
