Unformatted text preview: BA 310 Management and Organizational Behavior Fall, 2007 Monday and Wednesday, 4:30p-5:50p, Lincoln Hall Theatre Professor: Dr. Geoffrey Love (firstname.lastname@example.org) Office: 6 Wohlers Hall, 333-2194 Office Hours: Mon, Wed 2:30-3:30 PM Teaching Assistants: TA Email Office Hours Christian Heinze email@example.com TBA Young-Chul Jeong firstname.lastname@example.org TBA Najung Kim email@example.com TBA Monique Ziebro firstname.lastname@example.org 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. BA310 Syllabus, Fall 2007 1 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 dont 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. you will agree the attendant complexity is offset by your saving $40 or so....
