COURSE OUTLINE AND EXPECTATIONS LEARNING OBJECTIVES : This is a first course in the field of study known as general management. Students take a course like this one in business schools all over the country.

Increasingly, non-profit organizations are adopting similar corporate models as they attempt to focus upon and define the work of their organizations.

Whatever major or career you choose, understanding these topics will help you understand the company, agency, firm, or non profit you might like to work for or that you may be curious about. We will examine strategy, information management and performance issues. Throughout our considerations of these topics, we will look at the ethical issues and decisions involved in employee behavior and performance.
