VSB 2007-H01 HON: CORP RESPONSE & REGULATION

SAMUEL DILULLO
MWF 9:30-10:20

A company may produce quality products, effectively advertise their availability and do a superior job of managing its resources and still not succeed. Frequently lack of success can be due to the failure to understand legal implications within the decision-making process and/or how society views the way a business treats its stakeholders. This course examines the subjects of ethics, regulation, corporate social responsibility and business law as they relate to business decision-making emphasizing, where appropriate, their interrelationship. The course emphasizes the need for managers to consider both the legal, regulatory and ethical implications of their conduct as well as the impact of such decisions on the relationship the business has with government and society.

VSB 3500-H01 HON:Critical Thinking - Value Investing

DAVID NAWROCKI
W 6:10-8:50 PM

“Value Investing” is the art of purchasing an asset below its fair market value. The theory holds that at some point in the future, the price for this asset should rise to or exceed its fair market value, thus giving its owner a profit on their initial purchase.

Markets for assets often overreact to news, sending its price above or below its fair market value. Often, to correctly calculate the fair value of an asset, one must look beyond traditional valuation methods and go “outside the box” to conclude what future event or use for this asset will cause its value to increase substantially over the long term. We call this process the “Art of Critical and Independent Thinking”. Those contemplating enrolling in this course will make a decision to allocate their time and monetary assets in exchange for a productive decision-making process.

Our goal for this course is to present you with a logical framework on which to make productive decisions as you move forward on your career path. As mentioned above, this framework is based on the “Art of Critical and Independent thinking” which requires an understanding of what questions to ask.

Each week we present to you a speaker who has succeeded in their chosen field as a result of their ability to master the art of critical and independent thinking. While listening to these presentations, we recommend you ask many questions. Your goal is to come away from each class with an understanding of why and how each speaker employs critical and independent thinking to arrive at “outside the box” solutions during their successful career.
