Business 101

Business 101 is a course introducing Gies College of Business freshmen to professional responsibility. It begins by developing the concept of professional responsibility within a personal and interpersonal context. Students will discover the meaning of responsibility in their career and in professional relationships. The course continues by expanding the concept to an ethical balance of the profit motive and corporate responsibility within the global context. In addition to the video below, we have also developed a brochure given to all Business 101 students.
