Social Issues in Business
Lecture: We 4:30 – 7 p.m.
Location: Sherman Hall 207
Instructor: Carlton Crabtree
Successful innovations are achieved when people work together. This seminar introduces students to business concepts through collaboration and practical application including a group project to research a company business model that benefits society. Cultural dimensions affect the way companies promote products and services internationally. In this context, we also examine how social media influences consumer perceptions and organizational change. Students learn theories in business communication, corporate culture, ethics, and decision making. The leadership skills acquired in this course are part of the foundation to any discipline.

Have you thought of taking a First-Year Seminar?
Each of the courses in the First-Year Seminar (FYS) program is unique in its own way, but what is shared is the:
- small cohort experience. You, along with your faculty member and class participants, study a topic in a dynamic, small-group environment.
- focus on learning by sharing knowledge and experience through writing, discussions, and presentations…key skills your faculty and employers require.
- connection with faculty that can only happen in smaller classroom settings. They will get to know you well and can recommend you for all kinds of opportunities.
