Business 

 

Businesses, Organizations and Society

This course gives students a broad understanding of business situations. The course looks at effective individuals and organizations and how they manage success or failure. We use business school cases, articles and current events to give you greater insight into the decision-making behind the products and services you see and use every day. Typically, we bring in business leaders from the Hawai‘i community to speak and answer questions relevant to familiar companies and current topics.

This course gives students a rudimentary familiarity with product development, marketing, finance, etc. However, we steer away from technical business issues. Instead, elements of leadership, decision- making, strategy, value, and entrepreneurship are discussed. If you’ve ever thought about starting your own business or think you might consider business school after college, this course is for you. The instructors are leaders in the Hawai‘i business community and have developed this course over ten years. They are successful entrepreneurs, trained in business, finance, management and more, whose goal is to prepare Punahou students with a broad understanding of the dynamics of organizations and businesses they will inevitably face later in life.
