Educational Philosophy: To expose the student to the various roles, tasks and skills of the general manager in leading the overall business enterprise. This is in contrast to the tasks of a manager whose responsibilites are limited to a functional specialty area. Students will utilize case-studies to examine management as a key function and responsibility of the line general-manager, not merely as a staff planning-activity. We will examine the extent to which building strategy and building an organization are interdependent tasks.The course will prepare the student to enter the business-world understanding the importance of general management practice as a professional activity,which responds to multiple constituencies with conflicting goals and needs.Course Learning -Objectives:To provide the student with an understanding of contemporary concepts,analytical tools,methods of strategy-formation and strategic-analysis practices used in the business community.Case-study analysis will serve as the framework to facilitate learning through application of theses concepts.The course will offer students an opportunity to integrate and appy knowlege gained from previous courses,such as accounting,finance,marketing,production/operations,human-resources and information-systems,to gain an appreciation for the total business environment.
