Description: This course provides a 30,000 foot overview of the nature and development of organizations. In particular, students will examine how organizations relate to their members, customers, and society at large – and vice versa. It will also cover how markets and competition impact organizations – and what defines success and (ultimately) longevity. Over the first month, students will learn through watching videos, which will be reinforced through short quizzes. In the final two weeks, students will complete a final project followed by a mandatory 50-question test. Rodolphe will be available to assist students through an online forum and live video sessions offered in weeks three and five.
