Business and the Socio-Political Environment Fall 2004

PA-111 M, 19:00-21:30


Course Description

This course studies the increasingly complex set of interrelationships among business, government, and other interest groups in the public policy process. It explores the economic and legal environment, and the social and political factors that affect business organizations. A series of current corporate and public policy problems are discussed in order to raise major issues, including ethical issues, involved in managing the corporation’s relationships with many of its publics.


Course Objectives
As part of a student’s education in business administration, there is a need to integrate the various skills and knowledge acquired throughout the program within a current applied policy framework. Business and the Socio-Political Environment addresses this question by drawing on skills and knowledge acquired through the program to address a series of contemporary issues. The focus of the course is on both corporate and public policy issues. In particular, it concentrates on how the roles of firms, government, and consumers affect the scope and conduct of management. From a re-framing of institutional constraints and choices, students combine theory and technique in a series of case studies to examine the changing nature of public policy decisions and the associated impact on the decision environment of individual firms.
There are several objectives in this course. They include:


  1. To develop an understanding of the public policy environment of firms, including how public policy decisions are made and how these decisions affect the performance of firms, as well as an evaluation of these decisions in light of established public policy criteria;




  1. To develop skills that are appropriate to the formulation and implementation of policies and strategies essential to the shaping of public policy alternatives, including practice in analyzing specific policy situations;




  1. To create an awareness of and sensitivity to differing value systems that interact within the public policy environment, thus enabling the student to clarify one’s values as they complement or contradict these values, including the capacity to respond to differences in the public policy environment among other developed and developing countries;




  1. To encourage an understanding of and appreciation of specific critical public policy issues facing individual countries in general and business in particular.

Students in this course are expected to draw on a variety of skills developed throughout the MBA program. The include oral critical evaluations of specific aspects of the public policy process, written analysis of these issues, along with simulated decision-making at an individual and institutional group level. As there is a variety of materials to be used in the course, students are expected to have read all assigned materials before each class session. The course academic website is: http://netdrive.montclair.edu/~lebelp/plebel.html.



Educational Dimensions of the Strategic Charter Supported by the Course


  1. Discipline Specific Knowledge and Competencies – Students will acquire knowledge and skills in analyzing significant forces shaping the socio-political environment of business and how managers can respond to these forces. They also will acquire an understanding of the business and socio-political environment in other countries.

  2. Thinking Skills – As an integrative interdisciplinary course, students will acquire strengthened critical and analytical thinking skills. Emphasis is given to differentiation between fact and opinion, between cause and effect relationships, the development of inferential skills critical to effective decision-making.

  3. Communications Skills – Students will make periodic presentations regarding classroom case studies they have completed, as well as to analyze contemporary economic issues. They also will submit written reports and a research paper that demonstrate an ability to translate issues into a skill-specific decision environment.

  4. Change Management – Students will be encouraged to think about how economic factors shape institutional decisions at a social level as well as how it affects personal and professional choices. Emphasis is given to the ability to counter decisions within an environment of limited information and in which leadership skills are important.


Policies and Procedures

  1. Office hours: As posted on the website, and by appointment. Office telephone: (973)- 655-7778. E-mail: LeBelp@mail.montclair.edu. Office location: Partridge Hall 412




  1. Grading:

As this is a capstone course, emphasis is given to the integration of knowledge and skills relevant to the creation of a new firm or project with explicit consideration of various forms of risk and in which the role of markets and the public sector are clearly spelled out. Within this context, grading will be based on a series of projects to be completed by a student as per deadlines given within the syllabus.
The focus of these projects will be the preparation of a business plan for a new product or service. Each component must address explicitly the constraints of the socio-political environment, indicators for which are to be drawn on contemporary events, assigned course readings, as well as periodic data as provided by the instructor.
Components of this business plan will include the following: 1. A project concept paper module that specifies the range, scope, and rationale of the project; 2. A forecast module outlining the size of current and future market conditions that uses the forecast module posted in the syllabus; 3. A market survey module that the student will develop that addresses the target consumer population in terms of current and prospective demand; 4. An accounting module that incorporates the project in the framework of an existing firm’s operations or in terms of an IPO/venture capital startup; 5. A capital budgeting module that stipulates the logistics and timeline of implementation of the project; This capital budgeting module will also incorporate information on project operating costs in reference to an underlying production function with specific input quantities and prices; 6. A performance review module that specifies the organization of personnel, incentives for performance, and the rationale for specific performance reviews; 7. A financial statement module that reflects pre- and post-project conditions, including shareholder payouts as well as project manager compensation. 8. At the end of the term, a portfolio submission is to be made and which incorporates each of the original and/or revised modules and corresponding analyses. Each of these modules must identify at least three alternative scenarios: best, most likely, and worst, that reflect underlying elements of risk. In terms of risks, specification of probable sources and potential strategic responses must also be identified.
For each of these modules, risk specification must include: a. credit risk; b. operational risk; c. political risk; and d. environmental risk. Each of these risk factors must be explicitly factored into the various stages of the preparation and execution of the project. In addition, the final project submission must include an assessment of at least two of the assigned course readings relative to the design, execution, and evaluation of the project. This component shall serve as an appendix to the other modules and is to be linked to each of the 7 modules. In addition to submission of written versions, students will be asked to make selective in-class presentations using PowerPoint or equivalent presentation software.
Based on these project components, grading will be based on the following weights. Emphasis will be given to clarity, consistency, rigor, and comprehensiveness in the use of assigned materials as well as in terms of originality of individual proposals. The driver will be the initial selection of a project title, whose rationale must be spelled out in writing and presented orally in class as well as submitted to the instructor in terms of a 5 page single-spaced memo. In all cases, submission of each stage of work will require printed versions (each to be 5-10 single-spaced pages). Spreadsheet files that incorporate each of these modules are to be submitted electronically and simultaneously with printed hard-copy versions.
