To study the most significant forces in the environment (external and internal) of business firms so as to understand how they are changing the managerial job, how they are alternating the “rules of the game” for business, and how they are modifying the role of business (especially large corporations) in society. This involves, among other things, an understanding of the ways in which a firm’s organization, policies, strategies, procedures, decision processes, plans, and controls are hanging in response to such forces. 2. To demonstrate that many forces in the business environment are international in scope. 3. To develop an understanding of how business influences its environment . 4. To develop a tolerance for ambiguities in dealing with business-government-society issues about which knowledgeable observers have different views, and with problems for which there are no clear solutions. 5. To understand historical patterns in the business-government-society relationship, to understand how the past shaped the present, and to learn about present events and trends that are shaping the future. 6. To help students better articulate their analyses of forces in the business-government-society interface. 7. To help students develop an ethical and philosophical basis for making business decisions. 8. To utilize the knowledge of many different fields through an interdisciplinary approach , and to expose students to analytical methods that are appropriate in studying major issues in the business-government- society relationship. 9.
