I plan to take this course and learn as much as I can from it to better my business prospect of it.
By attending AIU I found the library and the labs to be of much help. I also like the fact that the instructors have the kindness in their hearts to provide guides and labs and other resources to help us out with the assignments given.

Response to (legal, social, economic):
Bolander states "A business operates within a legal framework that, for the most part, works. This legal framework has a long history and many reams of laws and regulations that will make your head spin.
