Section 2 Tuesdays 10:00 - 12:00noon Page 1 of 10 Course Scope and Mission This course is designed to introduce you to the principal functional disciplines of management. It will develop your understanding of what organizations do, and how they are managed across a broad range of functions. The course provides a landscape view of the academic field of commerce, consisting of: 1. an introduction to the role of business in Canadian society; 2. an introduction to the role and tasks of managers and leaders in business; and, 3. an introduction to the management disciplines (strategy, marketing, human resources, operations, accounting, and finance). The mission of the course is to expose beginning students to Canadian business and to provide students with a context in which they can pursue their education in the field of commerce. Class sessions will consist of lectures, case studies, and/or exercises. Course Prerequisites Co-requisite: ECO100Y1, MAT133Y1 Required Readings Contemporary Business (1 Canadian Edition) Boone, Kurtz, Khan & Canzer, ISBN: 9781118498637 GRADE DETERMINATION Practice Midterm 0% December Examination 43% Writing Assignments 5% Research Requirement 2% Final examination 50% Total 100% REQUIREMENTS AND CRITERIA Writing Assignments Communications skills are an important component of every successful career in management. Developing these skills will add to the value of your experience and to the value you will provide to society as a leader in business. During the fall term, you will work with some writing software that has been specifically designed to help you improve your critical reading and business writing skills. The assignment will focus on basic writing skills. The December exam will include a writing question. The writing portion counts for a total of 10% of the course (2% for completion of MyWritingLab work, 3% for short writing assignment, 5% for a writing question on December exam). Page 2 of 10 Midterm Tests and Final Examination The midterm tests and the final exam will consist of a series of multiple choice and/or short answer questions that test your knowledge of the material that is discussed in class sessions and that is found in the textbook. The December exam will also include a writing component. In class we will complement the material in the textbook with examples and case studies. We assume that you have read and are familiar with the assigned readings prior to class as we will not cover all the material in the textbook though you are responsible for all of it. The December and the final examinations will test text material not covered in class as class time is limited. The ability to self-study material will be a critical skill during your university experience. Refer to the Course Schedule for the dates of the midterm tests. The December exam date and final exam date will not be known until the applicable exam schedule is released by the Faculty of Arts and Science. Do not book any travel before December 21, 2013 or before April 30, 2014. Aids Allowed No study aids are allowed. You may use a non-programmable hand-held calculator. Research Requirement Marke ting and Organizational Behaviour researchers develop hypotheses and run experimental studies to test these hypotheses against actual behaviour. The research requirement in this course is intended to supplement the material on marketing and organizational behaviour by giving you more direct exposure to research in marketing and organizational behaviour. Once you complete this research requirement, you will be given 2 points toward your grade in this course. In order that you might better understand the research process, you may fulfill this requirement by: 1. Participation in two research studies (one per semester) OR 2. Writing two papers (one per semester). Each paper should provide an analysis of an article that reports empirical research. Participation. To participate in a research study, sign-up for an account online at http://rotman- When you request an account, make sure you fill out all of the information accurately, including selecting the correct course and section, to ensure that you receive credit. Once you have an account, you may read over the descriptions of research studies that are posted online. When you identify a study in which you would like to participate, you may view available timeslots for that study and sign-up online to participate. Participation in the actual research study (if it is worth 1 full credit) will take between 45 and 60 minutes. You will be debriefed at the end of the study, and you will be asked to answer a question about some aspect of the study. Once you correctly answer the question you will be given credit for completing one study. You will need to complete two studies to fulfill your research participation requirement in this course. Because this is a full-year course, you should complete one study during the fall semester and one study during the winter semester. OR Analysis of Article. To analyze an article, go to the Robarts library and find a copy of one of the approved journals. If you are interested in marketing studies, you may use the Journal of Consumer Research, the Journal of Marketing, or Marketing Science. If you are interested in management studies, you may use the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Page 3 of 10 Accounting Research, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Marketing Research, Management Science, Organizational Behavioural and Human Decision Processes, Strategic Organization, or Personnel Psychology. Look through the articles from the previous three years until you find one that interests you. Read the article. Write a summary of: 1) the objectives and hypotheses of the article; 2) the importance of the issues to the marketing or organizational behaviour community; 3) the research reported in the article, including the design of the study, the sample, and the materials (stimuli) used in the study, 4) the key results, 5) strengths and weaknesses of the study, and 6) the usefulness of the results to marketers or organizational behaviour practitioners. The analysis will be graded on a pass/fail basis. You will need to write two analyses to fulfill your research participation requirement in this course. Because this is a full-year course, you should complete one analysis during the fall semester and one analysis during the winter semester. If you have any questions about participating in research studies or would like to analyze research articles to fulfill your research requirement, please contact Dr. Julie Huang (416-946- 5072, julie.huang[email protected]). In the Fall semester, the deadline to complete your research requirement will be Friday, November 22, 2013. The deadline to complete the Winter term research requirement will be announced at the beginning of the Winter semester. i>clickers Your instructor will be using i>clickers in this course.
