Educational Philosophy: Welcome to Principles of Management (MG 352). As outlined by Rue and Byars, in Management: Skills and Applications, management is part of every business person's life. Management concepts apply equally to public, private, not-for-profit, religious organizations, large corporations, or small entrepreneurial firms. The principles of management are usually performed by the three levels or types of managers—senior management, middle management, and supervisory management. By studying the principles, knowledge about management can be categorized and examined.
Management skills (conceptual, human relations, and technical) are closely related. Leaders in the modern business environment come from a variety of backgrounds. The rich diversity present in modern management adds differing viewpoints and intellectual skills that enable an organization to compete in the international and domestic environment. (Rue and Byars)
Together, we will learn the key principles used in managing an organization: decision-making, ethical responsibilities, planning, operations, organizing, teams, staffing, development, motivation, leadership, conflict, controlling, rewarding and managing change. We will use readings, videos, lectures, case studies, self checks, and discussions as knowledge building tools. This junior level course culminates with summative assessments that include a research paper and proctored final examination.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The final examination is a comprehensive exam and must be taken to pass the course. The final grade will be based on the overall average of all assignments (discussions, quizzes, groupwork, mid-term, research paper, and final exam) taken during the course.
