MGMT 303 - K01: Principles of Management

Course Description

MGMT 303 K01 explores learning opportunities of students on the fundamental theories and concepts of management by examining the nature of managerial work under a range of business models and under rapidly changing business environments. Managerial functions such as planning, organizing, leading, and controlling are examined in the context of current organizations. In this class, you will assume a manager, and practice the role in the organization. Students will have the chance to develop managerial capacity through in-class case discussions. Term projects which demand your strategic decision making for the provided case will develop your managerial capability.

MGMT 303 K01 Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Students are able to discuss the process of managing organizations, kinds of problems, and issues which contemporary managers face; to acquaint students with the principles and models used by management to deal with these issues and problems.
  2. Students are able to explain, in particular, the management functions of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling and to identify their contribution to management of organizations.
  3. Students are able to articulate the role of managers in organizations.
  4. Students are able to describe the organization as a total dynamic system that interacts with its environment.
  5. Students are able to compare theoretical approaches of management discussed in classes with how management is performed by managers in actual organizations.

I will manage this course utilizing action learning approaches (e.g., case studies, role-plays, group dynamics, and the flipped classes) in addition to the traditional lecture-based teaching method. Successful action learning requires major investments in time and efforts. Students need to prepare the case discussions. Students should think over assigned cases and be prepared to contribute to the case discussions.
