Have you ever thought about being your own boss? Do you want to call the shots and reap the benefits of being in charge? Do you want to learn what makes Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos successful? What is the difference between Bill Gates and Michael Scott? Join the discussion in Business Mangement. This course seeks to develop sound management concepts within students, as management plays a role in any future employment opportunity. Students are able to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate data from the other functional areas of business (e.g., marketing, finance, and production/operation). Effective management requires decision-making abilities, long-range planning knowledge, human relations expertise, and motivational skills. Students learn the four basic functions of management: planning, organizing, directing, and controlling.
