Section Description: We are part of the business world every day. Whether you are buying a cup pf coffee, watching the news, downloading music, or sleeping on a great mattress, transactions had to happen to make that all possible. Products were made, goods were sold, profits rose and fell, and people were employed all to make those things possible. In this course, we will explore the world of business, both big and small. We will look at how the world changes business and how business changes the world. Understanding the micro and macro elements are both important, no more so than understanding how businesses are created, managed, and led. This course is about business in the context of our global society. It introduces students to a variety of concepts through reading, class discussions, and with conversations with guest speakers. Students will be encouraged to use course material to be self-aware and mindful about how businesses are formed, led, and managed, and will encourage them to be better consumers, business owners, and employees. It will also encourage continuous self-improvement in their leadership, teamwork, communications, and interpersonal skills.
