BA 310 – Management and Organizational Behavior Fall, 2007 Monday and Wednesday, 4:30p-5:50p, Lincoln Hall Theatre Professor: Dr. Geoffrey Love ([email protected]) Office: 6 Wohlers Hall, 333-2194 Office Hours: Mon, Wed 2:30-3:30 PM Teaching Assistants: TA Email Office Hours Christian Heinze [email protected] TBA Young-Chul Jeong [email protected] TBA Najung Kim [email protected] TBA Monique Ziebro [email protected] TBA Course Objectives This course introduces a broad range of topics in management and organizational behavior. Some topics we cover are motivation, leadership, teams, organizational culture, organizational structure, strategy, business ethics and entrepreneurship. The course is designed for students who aspire to be managers and for those who want to understand how organizations and managers function. The course is appropriate for business and non-business majors. Enrollment Enrollment eligibility requirements for BA 310 are set by the Business Administration Department and the College of Business. Enrollment itself is through the U of I Direct system, which works on a first come, first-served basis. Because the course is required for College of Business students, BA310 is initially open for enrollment to (only) College of Business students with junior standing and to students with approved business minors. However, enrollment is opened to students across the university shortly before the start of the semester. I will make announcements in class about the enrollment situation. Due to capacity constraints, I am unable to open the class to sophomores. If you have further questions, you can contact the Business Administration Office in Room 350, Wohlers Hall, 333-4240.

Course Materials These materials are REQUIRED unless otherwise noted. Textbook : Management by Robbins and Coulter. YOU NEED PURCHASE ONLY ONE TEXTBOOK. ANY VERSION YOU SEE IN THE BOOKSTORES IS FINE. That is, you can purchase EITHER: The new 9 th edition “custom” textbook (softbound), The 8 th edition “custom” textbook (softbound), The 7 th edition “custom” textbook (softbound), The hardbound 7 th edition “with 2003 update,” or The “original” hardbound 7 th edition. Textbooks available at U of I bookstore, T.I.S., Folletts. Textbook copies at bookstores around the university - whether new or used – should be packaged with the associated CD-ROM, Mastering Management . I do not recommend purchase the book elsewhere (e.g., on-line) because it will not have the CD, which we use extensively. If you go that route, you are one your own as I know of nowhere to purchase the CD-ROM separately. Why use different editions of the textbook? So that you don’t have to purchase a new textbook @ $125. As you know, textbook companies try to shut down the used-text market by releasing “new” editions every two or so years. The new editions rarely have much new content, so I have tried to be creative. Hopefully, you will agree the attendant complexity is offset by your saving $40 or so.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
