Law and Taxation
In an increasingly regulated and litigious society, businesses need an understanding of laws impacting them to ensure legal compliance and minimize litigation risk. Equally importantly, an awareness of business laws provides a basis for strategic decisions that provide competitive advantages and maximize shareholder value, without compromising corporate social responsibility. Today's students are tomorrow's business managers and owners. Knowledge of business law and the basics of legal strategy provide a strong foundation for our students' future success in the business world.
