This course explores the role of businesses, as distinct from other organizations and actors in a society, to produce and sell goods and services that meet human needs and wants by organizing resources. Profit-making, risk-taking, and operating in a competitive environment characterize most business organizations. Business management is the study of decision-making within an organization, whereas economics is the study of scarcity and resource allocations, both on micro and macro levels. Business management examines the use of information technology in business contexts, whereas information technology in a global society (ITGS) critically examines its impact on other fields, such as health and government.
