Hi, and welcome to the slide presentations for Introduction to Business. There is a set of slides for each of the eleven chapters that we will cover. There is another slide set with sound that you should also check out. These slides that you’re viewing here are the slides that I usually use when conducting a live face to face class. If all 40 of us were all together in a traditional classroom, we’d go through each of these sets of slides one at a time and have a discussion and answer questions about nearly all of these topics presented here. In our course, we won’t get to do that, at least the online section won’t. The blended section will meet roughly every other week to have some discussions of all of this, but not much. Since we can’t talk about this all together, it’s important for you to go though all of the slides and imagine how a class discussion might go. And then if you do have questions, comments, or would like to discuss some of these topics, please post your question or comment in the chapter discussion topic for this chapter. I won’t ignore you, and neither will your classmates.

What students are saying

    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.
