BUS 1220E

This course presents an introduction to business administration by offering students an understanding of the five functional areas of business: Finance, Marketing, Operations, Organizational Behaviour & General Management.  The course is designed to help students develop skills for effective problem-solving.  To do this, students will:

a)  learn the basic analytical tools (projections, break-evens, cost/benefit analysis, etc.)
b) apply these tools through a rational problem-solving approach:  Analysis; Alternatives; Decision and Action Plan.

Students will have the opportunity to practise decision making with imperfect information under time constraints using the case method.  BUS 1220E is an intense course with a lot of homework.  It is important that you attend all the sessions and complete all the homework.
