BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

Complexity is a constant in today’s business environment. It’s inherent in the evolving changes in public policy and regulation, the continuing virtualization of business processes, and even in the potential opportunities major business transactions may offer. These materials cover topics such as risk management, operational decision making, corporate governance, and crisis management.

These materials can be downloaded and duplicated for non-commercial, university educational purposes only. Using these materials for any other purpose, including but not limited to consulting practices, is strictly prohibited.
