This course is designed to introduce students to the diverse and exciting world of business, which engages professionals in creative and analytical thinking to solve problems and seize opportunity. However, business is a multi-dimensional discipline, requiring professionals to understand societies, economic forces, and political philosophies as well as markets, money, people, and the overall environment in which “the firm” operates. In addition, students will explore the meaning of “work” and its role in business. Students will be introduced to the traditional business disciplines, including accounting, finance, marketing, and management, as well as the broad societal environments in which those disciplines operate and interact. Students will also develop the analytical skills and communication skills (written and oral) expected in the business environment. This course is recommended for students in their first or second year of study interested in pursuing a business major or minor. Because BUS 111 provides business fundamentals, terms and concepts as preparation for upper level courses, we strongly encourage students to take this course prior to taking the Principles courses (i.e. MKT 311, MGT 323 and/or FIN 343)
