Course Description (Catalog) This course is a study of the management process including planning, organizing, staffing, directing, and controlling.

(Note to Students: The course materials, assignments, learning outcomes, and expectations in this upper level undergraduate course assume that the student has completed all lower level general education and career planning coursework necessary to develop research, writing, and critical thinking skills. Students who have not fulfilled all general education requirements through courses or awarded transfer credit should strongly consider completing these requirements prior to registering for this course.) Course Scope This course analyzes principles of management and includes principles, theory and functions of management. The course also addresses the management process, leadership strategies for motivation, decision-making and delegating, planning and the communication process. One of the important aspects of this course is the application of the theory to practical management issues. The course scope includes the modern definition of management as accomplishment of an organization’s goals, through organization of work, motivation of others, staffing of positions, control of labor and material, and evaluation of completed work. Because management was not instantaneously developed but evolved over a long period of time, historical evolution of management principles and theory is also addressed.

    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.
