Business & Society

Business impacts society and society impacts business.  Future business leaders need to understand these interdependencies.  We will focus on the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) which balances social responsibility, environmental sustainability, and economic growth and development with ethical behavior and global citizenship.  We will study economic, political, cultural, legal, demographic, geographic, and historical processes (both domestic and global) to understand how the business system functions, how business affects you, and how you can affect business. 

Business Law & Ethics

This course introduces students to the legal and ethical environment of business.  It will assist students in identifying and analyzing ethical issues in business, while giving students practical decision-making skills.  Basic legal content such as contracts, torts, alternative dispute resolution, intellectual property, and employment law will be covered.

Management & Organizational Behavior

Management is the process of understanding & motivating people to perform work to achieve objectives.  Students focus on developing key competencies including responsible decision making, effective communication, leadership, broad & global perspectives, understanding human motivation, setting objectives, and analytical problem solving.  Using case studies, we will explore applications such as performance, project, crisis, and conflict management.

Critical Thinking & Problem Solving

Critical thinking is the foundation for analytic decision making.  Students will learn to frame problems, define objectives, recognize information needs, analyze fact, value, and policy issues, evaluate options, design creative solutions, and develop implementation plans.  Using case studies, students will apply these skills to a variety of business problems.
