    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I've had Courses With Dr. Harbour on two separate occasions. Each time I have come away with a sound understanding of the concepts she introduced throughout the courses. She has a deep understanding of the business world and is able to teach concepts in a way that is easy to learn and retain.

    Course highlights:

    This course teaches the in and outs of a business, whether it be a small mom-and-pops style or an international corporation. You will learn concepts such as prioritizing expenditures and understanding and meeting market demand. You will even chose a corporation and monitor its stocks throughout the semester and report why or why not it had a successful quarter. An excellent experience for anyone who is majoring in business, or even personal enrichment.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to invest quite a bit of time into your chosen company. Research their history along with their business structure.
