COMM 460C - Critical Thinking on Business Issues

This books-based seminar course is designed to encourage students to think deeply and become more analytical about complex problems. The weekly discussions tackle topics such as market solutions, low-wage workers, virtues and costs of globalization, technology and privacy, women’s images, immigration policy and defining career success. The weekly assigned books are designed to provoke debate and experimentation with new ideas. The goal is to broaden students’ thinking beyond conventional wisdom. The course is concerned with questions instead of answers, and encourages a free flow of ideas through open, thoughtful discussions.
