Course description: This course is intended to introduce the students to basic management concepts, theories, and applications. We will review the fundamental functions of management emphasizing the interrelationships among planning, organizing, directing, and controlling. The concepts and theories we will study apply to small and large businesses, government agencies, schools and any other organizations you can think of. Since we live in a world filled with these organizations, management is really everywhere in our lives. Therefore, whether or not the student aspires to an official management position, the overview of how the organizations are managed will help you become a more effective member of the organizations of which you are a part, and a more effective person in general.
