Social Contexts

Students entering the business world must be cognizant of the social contexts within which all businesses operate. Courses that examine the complexity of society and social interaction, human learning and or personality will prepare students interested in business careers to be mindful of social contexts and, where appropriate, their own place within them. Such preparation will help students to appreciate the ways in which business functions internally as well as part of a larger whole. The courses available to students in this elective area address domestic and/or global social contexts.
