1. The Scope and Aims of the Course This course is designed to introduce you to the principal functional disciplines of management. It will develop your understanding of what organisations do, and how they are managed across a broad range of functions. The course also provides an introduction to the analytical tools for understanding various types and sizes of organisations and their management, and utilizes case studies and real world illustrations of these activities. MGM 101 is the first of two courses together with MGM 102, (which is offered during the term beginning January 2009) designed to provide an introduction to the academic discipline of Management. It is a prerequisite course for entry to the Management and Commerce Programs at U of T Mississauga. There are lecture sessions held on Tuesday & Thursday mornings each week during the fall term. The lectures extend the study of the assigned text readings and introduce applications of the models and topics; videos are also used occasionally to illustrate management in action. 2.
