Course Description

This course is a "capstone" seminar in general management. It integrates the knowledge, theories, skills, and techniques derived from the previous courses in this curriculum. Analysis and diagnosis of business problems are applied in order to formulate strategies, tactics, plans, and policies for the improvement of organizational performance. Accomplished through practice in rational and responsible decision-making processes, the course develops a well-defined approach to solving the technical, economic, and human problems of management. A sense of managerial responsibility in and for a democratic society that also asks recognition of and respect for individual, group, employee, and managerial values is stressed. Prior to class, participants will receive a syllabus listing the required textbook and delineating the required readings and case studies.
