Tutor Center: 155 LILLIS HALL – Located off the main entrance atrium toward campus ——————————————————————————————————————— COURSE DESCRIPTION This course is designed to challenge you to learn about the private enterprise system and better understand how organizations operate within that environment. Through this course, you will: • Explore the functional areas of business including management, accounting, product development, marketing, production and operations management, human resource management, and finance. • Learn concepts, language, and conversations that have evolved to help manage business organizations. • Learn how to be successful in an environment characterized by uncertainty and risk. You will begin building your understanding by studying the kinds of decisions that are made in organizations, the models managers use to help them make the decisions, and how those decisions are shaped by the markets they serve. You will be actively involved in making business decisions in a competitive environment and using the concepts to improve your decisions over time. Building understanding is like building anything else. You need raw materials and you have to engage in an active process that combines the raw materials into something new. In this case, the raw materials are business vocabulary, concepts, and models that are provided in the course. The active process will involve teamwork and in-class participation. For this reason, your active attendance in class is expected. Another goal of this course is to challenge you to meet your responsibilities in a timely manner. As in all university coursework, it is your responsibility to know what is required of you, to locate the resources necessary to complete the assigned tasks, and to complete those tasks on time. To receive full credit for any missed deadline (in-class or on-line) you have to notify me ahead of time and have a verifiable, academically legitimate reason. COURSE STRUCTURE The educational value of this course is created through the assigned activities and exercises. These activities and exercises are organized and delivered primarily through the course homepage, the simulation, and class meetings.———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————— BA 101: Introduction to Business Winter 2014 Page 2 COURSE INFORMATION AND MATERIALS Course Homepage http://blackboard.uoregon.edu The Blackboard homepage provides access to all reading materials, lecture slides, support materials, exercises, assignments, and grade information. To log on, you need to enter your user name (your Duck email user name) and a password (your email password). The Information Technology Center (ITC) in the Knight Library can help you resolve Blackboard problems. Resources from the University of Oregon Bookstore 1. Foundation™ Web-based Simulation SIM: F61437_000 www.capsim.com This subscription web-based simulation offers the experience of making business decisions in a competitive marketplace. You can buy a packet from the UO Bookstore or, for a few dollars less, purchase this online at www.capsim.com. 2. iClicker We will be using the “iClicker” student response system. You can purchase either the iClicker 1 or iClicker 2 (both work for this course) at the UO Bookstore at the checkout counter. The iClicker is the University of Oregon's vendor of choice and it may be used for other classes and can also be sold back to the bookstore. 3. An Introduction to Business - 8th edition, ISBN: 1269561502 and the 7th edition will work The course text provides critical reading material for the class. This material is also available on Blackboard if you choose to read it online or print it yourself. COURSE PERFORMANCE EVALUATION Students earn their grade according to the very specific criteria specified below. I may be very sympathetic to your need for a good grade, but it will not change the grade you earn in the course. In-Class Work In-class activities are designed on the assumption that you have come to class prepared. If you do not come prepared, your lack of commitment will affect your understanding and possibly your grade. For example, you will complete a series of application exercises (called “Foundation Exercises” in the An Introduction to Business text) that will help you build a functional understanding of the course concepts as they are applied in the simulation. It will be beneficial to complete these exercises before class and this will be helpful for the in-class activities. In-class activities will be evaluated with the use of an iClicker and you will be expected to have a functioning and registered iClicker for every class meeting beginning in week 2, class 3. Missed Class Options If you miss a class meeting, it is your responsibility to notify the class recorder (Marianne Rosen-Murr) before class and make up missed work in a timely fashion. Missed in-class directions are posted on Blackboard under the “Missed Class?” link. You can make up missed class work for academically legitimate excused absences. In-class activities missed for reasons that are not academically legitimate can
