Introduction to Business Administration

This one-semester elective course is intended as a practical, hands-on guide to help you understand the process of business administration.


This course is structured into lessons and Course Activities as follows:

  • The first lesson is about the role of management in a business organization, especially in the context of forces that will shape it in the near future.
  • The next five lessons provide students an understanding of managerial functions, including planning and decision making, organizational behavior, human resource management, and leadership.
  • The next two lessons deal with the fundamentals of finance and accounting.
  • The next four lessons discuss corporate taxation, business law and ethics, operations management, and quality management.
  • The next three lessons focus on marketing fundamentals and foundation economics.  
  • The final lesson discusses various tools used to drive business strategy.


You will submit the Course Activity documents to your teacher and will check your own answers in the Lesson Activities that accompany each lesson. Each lesson also has a multiple-choice mastery test. A multiple-choice end-of-semester test completes the course.

The Course Activities (submitted to the teacher) and the Lesson Activities (self-checked) are major components of this course.
