  • MGMT0001 - Principles Of Management

    Organizations emerge because individuals can't (or don't want to) accomplish their goals alone. Management is the art and science of helping individuals achieve their goals together. Managers in an organization determine where their organization is going and how it gets there. More formally, managers formulate strategies and implement those strategies. This 0.5 credit unit course provides a framework for understanding the opportunities and challenges involved in formulating and implementing strategies. We examine multiple aspects of how managers address their environments, strategy, structure, culture, tasks, people, and outputs, and how managerial decisions made in these various domains interrelate. The course will help you begin to understand and analyze how managers can formulate and implement strategies effectively. Please note that this 0.5 CU course does not fulfil the Wharton MGMT 1010 requirement
