BUS100 aims to provide students with key business skills, and problem discovery and solving abilities using various techniques, such as spreadsheet-driven analysis. Industry-derived case studies and a business management simulation game will be deployed to provide students with experiential learning. Through an interactive, experiential learning platform, students would learn about the various functions of a business entity ranging from leadership, finance and accounting, analytics, operations, human resource management, marketing and business intelligence. The course helps students to learn about these various functions of a typical business and their interrelationships, as well as the complexities of managing a business. In addition, leadership and management concepts (such as planning, controlling, and decision-making) as well as the Business Excellence framework will be discussed. This course equips students with the necessary life skills to deal with the challenges of an ever-changing work environment. As the course remains primarily skills-oriented, it continues to comprise of only in-course assessments (i.e. OCAS).
