This one-semester course is intended to help you understand the concept of accounting and its role in business, different firm ownership structures, the importance of business ethics, and the scope and importance of quality management. The course has 17 lessons organized into 4 units. Each unit has a Unit Activity and each lesson contains one or more Lesson Activities. This course will cover the different types of capital that a business needs at different stages, nature of legally binding contracts, different functions of the human resources division of a company, and the types of risks that entrepreneurs have to face. You will submit the Unit Activity documents to your teacher, and you will grade your work in the Lesson Activities by comparing them with given sample responses. The Unit Activities, Course Activities (submitted to the teacher), and Lesson Activities (self-checked) are the major components of this course. There are other assessment components, namely the mastery test questions that feature along with the lesson; the pre- and post-test questions that come at the beginning and end of the unit, respectively; and an end-of-semester test. All of these tests are a combination of simple multiple-choice questions and technology enhanced (TE) questions.
