An active involvement in laboratory/hands-on experiences with multibase blocks, Cuisenaire rods, fraction squares and bars, geoboards, Power Solids, etc. All topics are taught using concrete material to develop concepts. Topics: probability, space and dimensionality, measurement, structure, procedures, change, number and technology.
(F) This course introduces and presents an overview of leadership using a three-pronged approach: (1) survey of leadership theory, research, and practices, (2) application of leadership concepts through critical thinking and examples, and (3) development of leadership skills and abilities> Prerequisite: MGMT 352.
(S) This course focuses on leadership development, with the goal of improving personal and interpersonal excellence. It is based upon the premise that leadership effectiveness begins with human effectiveness. Students grow in self-awareness, identifying their leadership strengths and areas for improvement. Experiential exercises and group activities provide opportunities to learn and practice leadership skills with others. Students chart a course for change and development by creating a personal mission statement, goals, and action plan.
(S) This course introduces management and leadership as a functional area of business, including the development of organizational plans, policies, and procedures and provides exposure to basic theoretical developments in management and leadership thought. Research and theoretical analysis associated with management activities of an organization in the global and ethical environments will be studied. management and leadership analysis will be presented in written and oral communication media. Prerequisite: BUAD 151 or permission of professor.
(F) Using a system-process model, this course discusses the various subsystems (recruitment, selection, compensation, task specification, etc.) which fall under the responsibility of the HRM function. The sybsystems are designed to provide for the efficient and effective utilization of human resources in business concerns. Prerequisite: MGMT 352.
(S) This course utilizes the systems approach to study quality, process, capacity, inventory, and workforce to analyze and solve both production and solve both production and service enterprise problems. Topics include product management and control, process flow analysis, environment layout, forecasting, materials requirements planning, and performance improvement. Prerequisite: MGMT 352.
(F) This course responds to the increasing need for cooperative skills in projects, concurrent design and engineering, interdepartmental committees, quality circles, self-managed work teams, and relationship selling. Areas to be covered include: small group dynamics; team building; cohesiveness; trust; power; role constraints; facilitative communication; and conflict resolution. Teams will perform in simulated work environments and analyze cases. Prerequisites: MGMT 352.
(S) This course studies the lives and legacies of various noteworthy leaders throughout history and today. We take an in-depth look at how each leader's character, personality, style, virtues, strengths, and weaknesses played a role in his or her leadership effectiveness, using applicable leadership theories and models to explain concepts. We examine the selected leaders' decisions, behaviors, and relationships, analyzing how they influenced others, impacted their organizations and society, and achieved results. Understanding the personal and professional challenges and struggles that leaders have faced and overcome can teach and inspire us to learn from their examples. We will discover how leaders are courageous, resilient, self-confident, servants to others, collaborators, and deliberators. We further explore how leaders emerge, and the cultural, historical, societal, and organizational forces that shape a leader's development.
(F,S) This course introduces marketing as a functional area of business. It discusses the movement of goods and services from producer to consumer while examining the elements of the marketing mix (product, price, place, and promotion). The global, ethical, and legal issues found in the marketing environment will also be studied. Prerequisite: BUAD 151.
(S) A study of the factors and principles that govern behavior and decision making patterns in the consumer marketplace. Students will study behavior that consumers display in searching for, purchasing, using, evaluating, and disposing of products, services and ideas. Prerequisite: MKTG 321. (Odd years only)
(S) This course provides an overview of the social, economic, and marketing environmentin which advertising functions. This course will provide an in-depth coverage of advertising activities as they relate to consumer-driven mass media marketing activities. The course will focus on advertising planning and management as well as media strategies available to organizations. Prerequisite: MKTG 321 or permission of instructor.
(F) This course provides a broad understanding of the various elements of an integrated marketing communications program, with a concentration on the role of public relations. Prerequisite: MKTG 321 or permission of instructor.
