Create a metaphor or analogy that captures the essence of the major lessons learned in the program (like business administration is like . . .).
- Discuss the single most interesting or surprising thing you learned in the administration program program, as well as what made it so.
PART A – PLEASE RESPOND TO CLASSMATE DISCUSSION WHETHER YOU AGREE OR NOT & A DETAILED WHY: Business Administration is a lot like parenting or teaching. Youâ€™re responsible for the welfare of your employees and your business, and while everyone has a theory and an understanding of what is needed, no one knows the right answers for sure and the right answers often change with each generation (or child). There is no â€œone size fits allâ€ when it comes to management but learning as many tools and techniques as we can will better arm us to make other successful; and in turn, ourselves.
The most interesting thing I learned this semester was discovered in Sociology and supported in Statistics. Itâ€™s that people will often make the numbers say whatever they want, but the raw data doesnâ€™t lie. This was shown in statistics when we learned about a correlation between the number of African Americans who commit blue collar crimes. Many people in the world will stop at that data and generalize about the whole race, but Sociology taught us to keep looking deeper. We discovered that the data more appropriately correlates between African Americans and the impoverished, and the impoverished against blue collar crimes, with the middle and upper class committing just as many white-collar crimes. Our society will see the data how they want to see it, and lose sight of this isnâ€™t about race, itâ€™s about poverty, and the impoverished need a ladder to climb up.
