530 - Principles in Management

Principles in Management --- This course provides a foundation in management for information professionals interested in working in for-profit or non-profit organizations. In this course students will learn about management principles (e.g. planning, organizing, leading, controlling). Having a firm grasp of the principles is the first step. This is a skills based course, so students are expected to apply what they learn in class by reading and analyzing case studies. At all times students will be required to take on various roles (e.g. manager, employee, supplier, customer, competitor) to outline the issues managers face, evaluate managers' responses, and provide alternative courses of action.
