Discussion F 1:25-2:15pm
This course is designed to provide beginning students with an
introductory but comprehensive survey of business practices and
information. Managers, consumers, investors, and government
regulators all rely on a variety of information sources in making
their decisions. In this course, you will learn what these sources
are, where their information comes from, what it means, and how to
use it. A large part of the course will also be devoted to business
basics, which will further illustrate the importance of information.
The course will provide a foundation for continued studies in
business, and be useful even if you decide to pursue studies in
other areas. The course will also give you experience in reading and
discussing, as well as in the critical skills needed to interpret
possibly biased information.
It will be good preparation both for the I-Core courses in the
business major and for courses outside business which make use of
economic and business information sources.
