Business and Management 111. Fundamentals of Business

The goal of this course is to provide an overview and understanding of the major functions and activities of the business world, including international business. All fundamentals are explored: ethics, organizational behavior, leadership, human resources, communication, product conception, finance, operations, and marketing. Semester-long team projects, designed to develop a “Business Plan” for a theoretical business of the team’s choice, apply and integrate these skills and encourage creativity. Case studies and current events will be crucial supplements to the textbook, and a strong emphasis is placed on participation, communication, and teamwork.
