COURSE OUTLINE AND SCHEDULE
This course provides an understanding of how business, government, and society interact and interrelate.
More importantly, it outlines how business interacts with government, society and others in the
environment in which business operates. This is often referred to as non-market strategy, part of a
business' overall business strategy. A focus of the course will be business' societal responsibilities and
ethical considerations. Other focuses will be how government works, the business-government dynamic,
and strategies used by business to interact with government, society, and stakeholders. This course is
intended to broaden your business and societal perspective.
