How do senior managers think and make critical, strategic decisions? This MBA preview course will provide a useful foundation in the key principles of business management such as strategy, marketing, team building, finance, leadership, entrepreneurship, economics, financial analysis and accounting. Participants will gain insight into the formulation of business strategy, discover how the components of business fit together, better understand the broader competitive forces acting on organizations, and examine the critical task of motivating and leading people. Participants will gain a wide understanding on business issues and principles that will help to make sounder and more informed business decisions. This course is designed and taught as a primer for students considering an MBA but is useful for all who manage or aspire to manage in business, government or non-government organizations. Through lectures, discussion, MBA-level case studies and assignments students engage and apply analytical and strategic thinking concepts presented in class. This course offers an array of tools, methods and analytical techniques presented can be applied directly in the workplace: a veritable Swiss-Army Knife of tools and techniques to help you think like an MBA. Students who have a basic, foundational knowledge of business are encouraged to enroll in MBA200 over BUS101.
