MGMT 370: Management of Organizations
(3-0) Cr. 3. F.S.SS.
Prereq: ECON 101 or ECON 102
A management functions approach is used to explain what managers do in organizations; how they deal with external constituents, how they structure their companies, and how they deal with employees. A contingency approach is used as a framework for understanding how to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of organizations in today's dynamic, highly competitive business environment.
Management is a broadly defined discipline and activity, which is neither industry- nor function-specific. Management concepts, theories, techniques, and skills are applicable to all business functional areas and are essential for successful organizations, regardless of whether the venture is large or small, a well-established firm or an entrepreneurial start-up. Management requires sound conceptual, technical, and human skills for the effective utilization of organizational resources.
