Societal and Organizational Environment  
(3 courses)
In addition to understanding the internal functions of an organization, students must also understand the context in which all organizations exist.  No organization is an island; it must interact with customers, suppliers, regulatory agencies, and its own employees.  The Societal and Organizational Environment categories are designed to provide knowledge about contextual issues arising from relations with these constituencies.  Societal Environment courses deal with the external environment, including the government and the legal system, while Organizational Environment courses address the internal environment, including relations with employees and methods of dealing with risk.
