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

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).

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
Marketing 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
