These include accounting, finance, human resource management, marketing, operations management, and strategic planning. Attention is also given to the legal environment in which businesses operate, and the importance of business ethics and corporate citizenship. Throughout the course, students may be asked to answer questions or to reflect on what they’ve read in their notes. The notes are not graded.
