What is the Mission of the Course?

 

This is an elective course offered to NSD double major students and it will be conducted entirely in English. As an elective with a special mission, this course is not intended to be a general or “soft” course where you could coaster and take easy credits. Instead, it is a VERY RIGOROUS course designed to attract, select, and train those students with great academic credentials as well as strong interests in pursuing careers related to scholarly research in Business Administration, broadly defined, in general, and in Management in particular.

 

This is NOT an Economics class.

This IS a Management class.
