This course provides an overview of the field of management and establishes a foundation and common vocabulary for future course work. It emphasizes the functions of planning, organizing, directing and controlling. The course assumes students have limited academic knowledge of management theory, and some experience in real world management situations to bring into the classroom. In each session the class explores some aspects of management in theoretical terms and then focuses on application of the theory to the practical problems facing managers.
