 The Intro Core Course
  10. 10. Freshman Core Course – First course in management, taught through the lens of technology – Framing question: – “How can I possibly compete when everyone can copy my technology & the competition is a click away?” – Accessible, Practice-focused Content – strategic & cross-disciplinary focus – case-chapters – framework/concepts chapters – exam & group project
