A readings packet has been assembled for IME 6220 and is available at the WMU bookstore. There is no formal textbook for the course, although the student will find the Luthans text for IME 6000 a valuable reference for this course. The reading packet contents are given later in this syllabus.
A working knowledge of the basic theories of management is assumed. This course builds on the foundation begun by IME 4020 and IME 6000. Students unsure of their readiness for this course should check with the instructor and review the texts used for those courses and be conversant with their contents.
