MG 3010 - Principles of Management


(3)
Students will be immersed in a Management experience requiring them to make business decisions that involve all functional areas (e.g., finance, marketing, advertising, human resources, etc.). This experience will have students doing the work of managers. Using this common experience as a reference point, students will explore the systemic context of management, including study of contemporary organizations. In addition, students will learn about important contextual variables of managers at various levels (top, middle, low). The traditional functional areas of finance, marketing, production/service, R&D will be explored within the possible organizational structural designs (simple, divisional, combination, virtual) and students will learn the internal and external constraints on managerial decision-making. Further managerial topics include strategy, structure, alignment, and their importance in addressing external environmental uncertainty.

Prerequisite: Sophomore standing and MG 1900 .
