Honors | Business in the Information Age
G100 | 4877 | Jaffee


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.
