Welcome to the Management course at New World University.

In this course you’ll begin to explore the exciting world of management. This course includes the underlying themes of strategic thinking, entrepreneurial thinking, and active management. Strategy, for instance, is explicitly concerned with the determinants of high performance. The entrepreneurial dimension reflects an underlying and growing trend that shows that students and instructors see themselves as entrepreneurs and active change agents, not just managers. An active management perspective shows how leaders and leadership are essential to personal and organisational effectiveness and effective organisational change.

This course relies with our gratitude on the first revision of the first edition of Management Principles by Mason Carpenter, Talya Bauer, and Berrin Erdogan; and as such its long form readings are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 License.
