TIDB 1010  More Than Just Business I  (1.5)  

TIDB 1010 introduces students to the business world by critically examining the art of management. The course focuses on essential business questions: Why and how do people start businesses? Why do people work together, and how does one lead them? How do firms manage their finances? The objective of TIDB 1010 is to introduce students to basic business concepts, to develop plans for their fields of study, and to learn about potential careers and have fun in the process.

TIDB 1020  Law and Order: Pre-Law  (1.5)  

In Henry VI, Shakespeare wrote, “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” However, “all the lawyers” have avoided being killed since Shakespeare wrote that line. Why? From the most significant corporate mergers to the simplest adoptions, and from public policy to the enactment of criminal laws, the need for lawyers is increasing because the law is a central part of our daily lives and the bedrock of a free society. Although the press might occasionally indicate otherwise, lawyers are members of an enduring profession. As such, they receive respect, but is being a lawyer really like the popular portrayals on television shows such as Law and Order, or in a John Grisham novel? This class will help students explore how one becomes a lawyer and the practice of law.
