Honors | Business in the Information Age
G100 | 4785 | Rasmusen, E.

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, discussing,
and the critical skills needed to interpret possibly biased information.
G100 will be of interest to students already admitted, to those
considering a business major, and to those who intend this to be their
only business course. It can be taken concurrently with E201 and E202, or
before them. There are no prerequisites or corequisites for the course. 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.
