Organizations in Society (OIS) examines organizational forms designed to produce and deliver goods and services, commonly called "businesses." OIS will examine all types of such institutions including for-profits, nonprofits, civic associations, membership organizations, and others, and examine their relationship to the world at large.
This case study course aims to introduce students to how alumni practitioners, in a range of industries, deal with common business issues revolving around the current semester's theme. The fall 2023 theme is expected to be "Beauty," and the spring 2024 theme will likely be "Transformation." Future semester themes will be chosen and announced later.
The objective is to eliminate the artificial divide between academic and professional practices, and enable students to better understand how liberal arts is the foundation of all business careers. Students will have weekly readings that draw on multiple divisions spanning all three academic divisions. Note: this course may be repeated for credit one time (i.e., total of two enrollments).
