Business, Government and Society (MGMT003): Getting Started

Research guide for information resources on business, government and society.

Course Description

This course overviews the economic, legal, social, and ecological responsibilities of business and their implications for managerial decision-making.

The primary theoretical perspective taken is the stakeholder view of the firm which allows for close examination of apparently conflicting goals between different stakeholders' interests. Related frameworks and applications discussed in this course include corporate social responsibility, globalization, corporate governance, and public policy measures affecting business.

The frameworks and issues discussed are critical to understanding how firms can be both financially successful and valuable to society, a concern which is increasingly influencing managerial decision-making.
