Introduction to Business

Business 1000 gives students an overview of the study of business early in their college studies so that they can decide which field to major in and how the world of business works. The class is broken in four distinct parts–finance, marketing, management and an introductory section that covers ethics, global business and economics. Each of these parts covers the basic concepts found in one of the areas a student might select as a major. Each section also covers the current issues in today’s business world. These are the kinds of topics likely to be encountered in the current business press. Lectures and recitation sections are both supplemented with real-world case histories designed to highlight a specfic topical, and often controversial, issue. In the recitation sections, students write about, debate and otherwise present their ideas on each of the current issue topics covered in the large lectures.
