This is an introductory course designed to familiarize students with the fundamental concepts regarding management in organizations. The course addresses the central question of how a person can be a good manager. Principles of Management is organized around three pillars of management -- the strategic perspective, organization, and personal leadership. Major topics include ethics, the strategic management process, change management, performance measurement, managing human capital, motivation, power and influence, and managing teams. The course emphasizes learning management theory and applying it in a business context. Management majors may not use this course to satisfy a departmental elective.
This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
