Course description

Understanding the Business Environment

This course introduces the functional concepts of business in terms of economic systems, global markets, corporate social responsibility, and the importance of small businesses to the American business system. Although the functional areas of business will be the core of the course, it is not intended to present those areas in depth. Instead, all functional areas will be addressed using a stakeholder lens allowing students to become familiar with how and why businesses operate the way they do.
