Description
An undergraduate honors course combining the writings of classical authors from philosophy, economics, history, literature, business, religion, science, etc. with a student's own experience and knowledge of business. This discussion format course will emphasize the conceptual and human value based nature of business thought as seen through the eyes of the classical authors and as applied to the fields of accounting, finance, management, marketing, and production. Vigorous in class discussions will be complemented by student written papers focused on specific business cases applying the conceptual notions discussed in class. Students will be challenged to reexamine their own preconceptions of business, learn how others view business, and form a firm foundation on which future academic studies of business can be built.
