Business is an amalgamation of various systems and processes. Everything from a local bakery to a supermarket, a multinational corporation to a manufacturing plant, fits into its definition. Therefore, this course aims to demystify the world of business by providing an overview of its most vital concepts, gearing the students towards applying the acquired knowledge to projects and businesses regardless of the occupation. While this course explores the Macro and Micro business environment and its relationship with an organization's vision, mission, and objectives, it also discusses business fundamentals like the economic environment, business models, systems, structure and culture, marketing, operations, finance, and strategy. Delivery of crucial concepts and models would be reinforced with the help of team-based exercises, industry examples and case studies from present-day organizations operating in the Canadian and global marketplace.
