Introduction to Business
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached

Business can refer to a particular organization such as WalMart or to an entire market sector—for example, “the music business.” Compound forms such as agribusiness represent subsets of the word’s broader meaning, which encompasses all activity by suppliers of goods and services in the agricultural industry.  Business can also refer to an individual who earns his or her income by working from home selling items through an online auction site like eBay.  The concept of business has enough definitions and applications that we could almost say that everything is business. Throughout this course we will explore the various functions, roles, and characteristics of business while keeping in mind that business is like the air we breathe—everywhere!

Marketing is a tool used by companies, organizations, and people to shape our perceptions and persuade us to change our behavior. The most effective marketing uses a well-designed strategy and a variety of techniques to alter how people think about and interact with the object in question. Less-effective marketing causes people to turn off, tune out, or not even notice. Why should you care about marketing? Marketing is an ever-present force in modern society, and it can work amazingly well to influence what we do and why we do it.

Conditions of Use:

Recognizing that a course in economics may seem daunting to some students, we have tried to make the writing clear and engaging. Clarity comes in part from the intuitive presentation style, but we have also integrated a number of pedagogical features that we believe make learning economic concepts and principles easier and more fun. These features are very student-focused. The chapters themselves are written using a “modular” format. In particular, chapters generally consist of three main content sections that break down a particular topic into manageable parts. Each content section contains not only an exposition of the material at hand but also learning objectives, summaries, examples, and problems. Each chapter is introduced with a story to motivate the material and each chapter ends with a wrap-up and additional problems. Our goal is to encourage active learning by including many examples and many problems of different types.

UWLP: Community Advocacy Training for Utah Women
Rating

Description: Community advocacy can be fun, simple, and meaningful. However, it can also feel overwhelming, confusing or frightening, particularly for women who do not know where to start or what to do. In this workshop, Action Utah will demystify community advocacy and make engagement more accessible. Join Andrea and Patti to learn about why women's engagement matters, what advocacy looks like, and how to find your own best way to impact the issues you care about. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of our political system and how to participate in the legislative session. More importantly, however, viewers will also come away with specific ideas on how to advocate for a cause, equipped with practical tips and tools for successful community action.
