In sync with some of the problems which modern firms face, we will go through some of the main theories concerning management. Students will be required to acquire 'Tools for thinking' in order to discuss problems related to the themes taken up in lectures.
To make it easier for students taking their first shot at the management theory, I use recent examples (extracted from newspapers, news reports, etc.) to give them a better image of the problems which arise in the world of business. In addition, I also offer supplementary reading materials (consistent with the day's lessons) at the end of each lecture.
We will work on themes such as follows
One assignment paper will be given over the course.
