Summer MBUS 699 Course Descriptions
Summer 1 – Saturday intensive class, June 13

Over the course of a day, we will examine the various dimensions of a competitive business plan (among them industry, environment, demand, production, finances, contingency, and implementation) and the key qualities of a feasible idea to innovation strategy. The course will culminate in the development of an interactive business plan.
Real Estate Investments
Summer 1 – Online
This course introduces students to a variety of concepts useful for real estate consumers, investors, and professionals. Students will apply the fundamental concepts of financial analysis to evaluate home ownership interests, market valuations, and investment properties. Students will leave this course armed with spreadsheet based financial tools, designed for real estate investment analysis.
Core HR Issues for All Managers
Summer – Online
Core Issues in HR examines concerns central to managing people in organizations. Several topics reflect enduring struggles such as getting a place on the organization’s strategic team and aligning HR practices with organizational mission, culture, and business objectives. Other topics are rapidly changing and demand more time from managers than ever before such as work-life balance, generational conflict in the workplace, managing presenteeism (i.e., Internet surfing among employees), and telework. This course is designed to give non-HR professionals useful insight into the HR function and tools to leverage HR knowledge in their own workplaces and careers. The course also provides HR professionals with an opportunity to engage with research on challenging topics they encounter every day.
Please fill out course evaluations on Zagweb during the last two weeks of MBA & MAcc classes. These evaluations provide important feedback to the program and faculty about the curriculum. If course evaluations are not available, be sure to inform your professor and/or Adriane Leithauser.
