Do you want to be an entrepreneur with a business of your own?
Do you want to work as a manager, or maybe you just want to strengthen your leadership skills?
Whatever you want to achieve in the workplace, an online business and leadership degree from North Greenville University can help you make it happen.
The Introduction to Business is one of the first courses you’ll take as an online business and leadership student at NGU. It’s important because it lays the groundwork for all the other coursework you’ll do while earning your degree.
To alleviate any concerns, here’s an overview of everything you can expect to learn and accomplish in Introduction to Business.
Overall, the goal of this course is to teach you the basic concepts, methods, and vocabulary of business. That way when you enter the workplace, you’ll be able to seamlessly integrate as a beneficial member of any team. After completing the course, you’ll have a good idea whether an online MBA degree is something you want to pursue. You’ll also have the basic knowledge you need to thrive in some of our more advanced online business courses at NGU.
Business is a complex field, but our Introduction to Business program gives new students a thorough orientation in the subject. This degree approach is generalist in nature. You won’t study any specific aspect of business in-depth in this course, but by the end of the semester, you’ll have a good understanding of the different elements that make up the field of business, as well as how these elements fit together. In particular, this course looks at the practical, interpersonal, ethical, and financial angles of business.
On a day-to-day basis, a core part of business is understanding what makes people tick. As you complete this course, you’ll learn about teamwork, communication, and leadership strategies, the “soft skills” that make great business people.
You’ll sharpen your problem-solving and decision-making skills by looking at numerous case studies drawn from real-world businesses. You’ll learn the basics of practical issues like marketing and business finance, but you’ll also grapple with less tangible issues like business ethics.
Additionally, the Introduction to Business course, like other courses at NGU, is grounded in biblical principles. The course places special emphasis on the importance of servant leadership and good business ethics. This approach is meant to equip students with the understanding and perspective they need to become principled, fair leaders in the real world after earning a degree.
After you complete Introduction to Business, you’ll be ready to take other business courses at NGU. You can look forward to more in-depth courses on management strategies, leadership, accounting, economics, and marketing. You’ll also get real-world experience completing field-based internship courses as you earn your degree. Introduction to Business is the course that opens the door for years of future learning as an online business and leadership major at NGU.
