MBA 6905 - Special Topics: Debating Modern Capitalism

Hours: 3
This course will examine different theories of modern capitalism and how it functions in the United States and global economy. The goal of the course is to help managers in their work by understanding different theories of how capitalism emerged as well as arguments about its strengths and limits. The goal of the course is not to provide an endorsement or critique capitalism, but to assist managers in understanding the ways that capitalism is not understood and constructed. In pursuing these aims, we will explore the relation between power and capitalist development; the role of firms, institutions and social structures in economic development; the relation between capitalists, managers and workers; and the impact of economic organization on the family and social structure.

Offered in 2011/12 only. MBA 6905 courses are courses offered on experimental basis for a limited time only. Once the course is deemed appropriate for permanent adoption to the MBA curriculum, then a formal proposal for adoption is made.
