Course Description:

Business, Government, and Society is an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the dynamic interrelationships among the three major sectors of an economy. It is an advanced level study that enables the student to develop insights into roles of government and business in society. It is a general audience study that can be taken by: students in management and business to help them meet the ethical and social responsibility aspect of the BME guidelines; students in economics adding breadth to their concentration; and students outside that area of study who wish to further the inter-disciplinary perspectives in their degree program plans.

Prerequisites: Some knowledge of economics is required while some background in any of the following is useful - management, history, political science, and philosophy. Students must demonstrate abilities to: write at an advanced level; conduct disciplined internet/library research; analyze case study issues and problems, discuss alternatives approaches to their resolution, and create well defended recommendations.

This course fully meets the General Education requirement in Social Sciences.
