COURSE OBJECTIVES: This course exposes the student to the functions of modern
                   business management (staffing, planning, organizing,
                   directing, and controlling) in a complex, global
                   environment. Students will understand theoretical text
                   readings and case studies that are applicable to practical
                   situations in the workplace. The course will provide the
                   fundamentals necessary for many other courses in the
                   business disciplines.

                   On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

                            1.       List and describe major management theories as
                                     represented through the history of modern
                                     management thought.
                            2.       Define and describe the planning, organizing,
                                     leading, and controlling functions of management.
                            3.       Describe the internal and external environments of
                            4.       Demonstrate written communication skills
                                     appropriate to the profession of management.
                            5.       Discuss ethics and social responsibility in the
                                     context of management.
ASSIGNMENTS:        All class members are responsible for the timely reading of
                    the textbook, active participation in classroom discussion,
                    and answering independently and in a timely fashion, the
                    questions attached to the case studies at the end of each
                    chapter. Each case study will be worth a maximum of 10
                    points each and must be turned in at the beginning of the
                    class session during which they are due. You will not be
                    able to write them out during class or even during the
                    discussion of the case. If you don’t attend class, you must
                    send the case to the instructor before the class meets in
                    order to receive credit. Late submissions, for whatever
                    reason will suffer a penalty.

EXAMINATIONS:       There will be three (3) mutually exclusive examinations,
                    two mid-term examinations and a final given live at the
                    appointed time in the Syllabus. Exams will emphasize
                    content from the course immediately preceding that exam.
                    Each exam will be worth a maximum of 100 points.
                     Cheating or dishonesty of any kind or description, if
                    discovered and proven, will not be tolerated. Discovery of
                    dishonesty will result in dismissal from the course with a
                    grade of “F”.

STATEMENT:          “Your work may be submitted to an on-line plagiarism
                    detection service. Cheating, plagiarism, or knowingly
                    furnishing false information to the University constitutes
                    academic misconduct, and disciplinary procedures
                    specified in the Student Handbook will be followed.”

ATTENDANCE:         You are required to attend all classes. You are allowed to
                    miss one (1) with no deduction in participation points but
                    after that there will be participation points deducted for
                    lack of attendance.

                              mechanical breakdown beyond our control, students who

                              first week of class. Consideration will be given to
                              relocating the classroom or making other arrangements.”
