The purpose of this web site is to provide information and materials for students enrolled in Wayne Smith's Management 360pace course, Class #  17444, for the Spring, 2008 semester. This course meets in the "1st-half of the semester", Tue 6:00pm - 7:50pm (1/22, 1/29, 2/5, 2/12, 2/19, 2/26, 3/4, 3/11) and Sat 8:30am - 12:00noon (1/26, 2/9, 2/23, 3/8) in OV25. This course is offered by the Department of Management in the College of Business and Economics at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). CSU Northridge is one of 23 campuses in the California State University system.

This class section is offered under the umbrella of the PACE program. This program includes courses designed to be taught in an "intensive" format, including a shorter semester and more rapid movement through the course material. Often, mid-career working professionals (some of whom are already managers) take these classes and are therefore used to studying and interacting together. While non-PACE students are welcome to enroll (assuming space availability), non-PACE students will find this class section of MGT 360 more difficult and time-consuming that non-PACE sections of MGT 360. Or put differently, students will need to expend more effort both in-class and out-of-class in this section of MGT 360 than in other sections of MGT 360 in order to earn a passing letter grade.

My email address is wayne.smith@csun.edu. For email sent to me by students, the Subject line should start with "[CSUN Mgt360pace]" (without the quotes) [ example ]. Interested students may learn more about me by reviewing my personal web page. The PDF materials on this page require the "free" Acrobat Reader.


The following notes are updates/changes provided prior to the semester and between class sessions (in descending chronological order).
