Educational Philosophy: Welcome to Principles of Management (MG 352)! The concepts and theories learned in management can be applied to every aspect of an individual’s life both professionally and personally. This course is broad and covers many exciting and interesting aspects of management. Topics covered include diversity, the history of the management movement, communication skills, decision making skills, ethics, corporate social responsibility, international business, group work and teams, employee development and motivation, and leadership skills. In addition, we will cover the four functions of management; planning, leading, organizing and controlling. A majority of the learning experience for this course will be based on lively classroom discussions in which all students are expected to participate. Classroom interaction and discussions assist students in a more in depth understanding of the concepts and theories presented in the textbook and help to promote the learning objectives. We will thoroughly examine and discuss the skills and practical application of effective management techniques
