Description:

Core Concepts of Management takes a streamlined approach that focuses on fundamentals and leaves room for additional content. With Wiley's Business Extra Select program, Instructors can build on the core text by adding articles, cases, and readings from such leading business resources as INSEAD, Ivey and Harvard Business School Cases, Fortune, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, and more. In addition, Instructors can select a pre-built Business Extra Select CoursePack, or create their own CoursePack from the thousands of articles and cases in the Business Extra Select database. You can even add your own content. CoursePacks can be packaged with the text or purchased separately online.
