This course takes a holistic approach in helping students develop an understanding of their future places, as entry level managers, in business and other forms of organizations. Functional business learning is undertaken using the lecture method. In parallel, the basic elements of strategic management are introduced in order to develop students’ strategic thinking capabilities. Project work focuses on adapting students’ career strategies to the employment environment, and on adapting companies’ strategies to their competitive environments. Finally, the case method is used to emphasize ethical self management, group dynamics and organizational governance, and entrepreneurial processes involved in starting and managing a small business. The course demands that students: use their initiative; develop their analytical, decision making and interpersonal management skills; and take responsibility for achieving success.

Courses Descriptions

This course is the first of a two course sequence designed to introduce students to algorithm design and programming in a high level language such as C. The main objectives of the course are to develop the ability to identify, understand and design solutions to a wide variety of problems. Topics include: computer system overview; hardware and software; problem-solving steps; concepts of variables; constants; data types; algorithmic structure; sequential logic; decisions; loops; modular programming; one dimensional arrays; and test files. If possible, problems like searching/sorting will be addressed. (3 lecture, 1.5 laboratory hours a week)
This course will cover linear systems, matrix algebra, determinants, n-dimensional vectors, dot product, cross product, orthogonalization, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, diagonalization and vector spaces. (Prerequisites: Both Ontario Grade 12 Advanced Functions (MHF4U) and Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U) or MATH-1280.) (Antirequisites: MATH-1260, MATH-1270.) (3 lecture hours, 2 tutorial hours per week.)

Courses Descriptions

An introduction to microeconomics intended to provide students with the tools necessary to begin to understand and evaluate how resources are allocated in a market economy. Specific topics include: how markets function and theories of the business firm, of consumer behaviour, and of income distribution. The economic roles of labour unions and government are also covered. The theories are applied to contemporary Canadian economic problems.
