CLASSES YOU MIGHT TAKE
Foundations of American Enterprise
This course is designed as an overview of three broad categories: the economic, financial, and corporate context of business activities; the organization and management of firms and organizations; and the marketing and production of goods and services.
Identifying and Capturing Markets
You’ll learn how to identify individual and organizational market needs through entrepreneurial thinking. Exposure to a broad range of organizations—from startups to a variety of industry sectors—will provide insight into the role that marketing plays in an organization’s ability to identify, capture and grow these markets.
In this introduction to the financial management of a corporation, you’ll study the following questions: How should a firm decide whether to invest in a new project? How much debt and equity should a firm use to finance its activities? How should a firm pay its investors? How do taxes affect a firm’s investment and financing decisions? What determines the value of a firm?
