Our section of
Corporations, Politics, and Society
is designed to provide students with an understanding of the
increasingly vital relationships between business, government, society, and the individual, and to provide
students with the tools and analytical abilities necessary to develop strategies to manage the concerns of internal
and external stakeholders of business.
Students will be given the opportunity to become more aware of:
social, political, and ethical issues facing business, society, and individuals,
how these issues impact business, and business impacts these issues,
how and why government affects business,
how to develop a broad range of organizational and managerial responses to social and ethical issues,
the global nature of the business environment today,
the idea that the fate of a corporation may not be decided by the marketplace, but in the non-market
