Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
Business 101 gives you the major foundations of what is involved in the business world. It gives you a glimpse of finance, accounting, and marketing. Professors do a very fine job of helping you understand the content, and applying that content into the coursework. Also, with this course you will get to practice building a strong business mindset through projects and papers.
This course not only increased my knowledge about the business world, but also taught me many life lessons that is crucial for making it through our world today. For example, my professor would repeat every class, "It's not what you say, but how you say it." This was definitely the most important piece of advice he gave us. The course also gives many opportunities to build our business image as individuals. We had a few presentations that allowed us to practice those skills. For example, the Six Minute Pitch allowed us to present a new business idea within six minutes, and the goal was to impress the professor enough to invest in the idea. It was similar to the show "Shark Tank". Over all, you learn many useful skills in this course, not just what stocks and bonds are.
