Course Commitments: 

The students of the course are expected to commit themselves  towards  a  successful  completion. Class participation in terms of attendance, discussions and contextual conversations are encouraged. Your commitment in class is also a motivation for me, your course facilitator. A subject is only as limited and as interesting as you perceive it to be. So broaden your outlook towards this subject (and certainly all other ones in your program), get creative with your learning to add ‘fun’ in the fundamentals of Business Organization. The lecture sessions will  put  you  in  situations of  being in the shoes of a businessman or that of a customer. Bring out your answers and insights. Listen to what your fellow mates have to say and encourage them to voice their opinion should you witness hesitation. The course subject being in-trend, regular readings of newspapers and magazines  are always a plus since you update yourself on the topics we  will be discussing in  class.  Self  motivation  is an important factor, be full of it. The key is to play around with the methods by which you learn.
