BUS 3900 - 003 Women & Cap in 20th century


The position of women in the workplace has been the subject of frequent political debate on a global stage. Inequality and discrimination have affected the status of women workers, together with their opportunity for progression. The fight for equal status, equal rights, and equal pay for women has long roots, and it is these aspects and many others that we will examine. Contextualized within wider debates around the role of global warfare in the first half of the twentieth century (which catapulted women to a position of vital importance on the home front) to the rise and development of the feminist movement throughout the twentieth century, this course will examine how women’s status in the workplace and society changed in the twentieth century, the major accomplishments, and the work that remains. Through the use of case studies and seminal texts on the role of women in business and society, the major challenges facing women in the workplace, their responses to these difficulties, and how both governments and businesses have slowly developed policies to account for the needs of women in the workplace will be analyzed.

BUS 3930 - 002 American Business History


President Calvin Coolidge once said that the “chief business of the American people is business.” As business is a dominant institution in American life, an historical perspective on it greatly enriches our understanding of contemporary American society. This course takes a broad approach to “business history.” It examines the obvious triumph of the large corporation as the dominant form of business organization, the more recent finance-ization of the American economy, and some of the iconic leaders in American business history. But it also examines important underlying economic trends and ideas, technological shifts, public policies, business–government relations, the transformation of Americans into “citizen consumers,” and the difficulty of ensuring “security” for citizens in a market society. Along the way we will dip into Colonial America, the Industrial Revolution, the Civil War, the Age of the Robber Barons, the Great Depression, the long post-World War II boom, the "deindustrialization" of the American economy since the 1970s, and the rise of the Silicon Slopes!
