Abstract

Twenty-five years after John A. Miller described his seminal experiential Introduction to Organization and Management course in JME, MGMT 101 (formerly MG 101) continues to be the foundation of management education at Bucknell University. In this article, the current MGMT 101 faculty members provide their perspective on contextual and operational changes in the course by providing an overview of MGMT 101’s foundations, nuts-and-bolts elements of the course that have remained consistent and those that have evolved, and key elements that have either been affected by or have led to changes in the course. In all, this is the story of our ongoing efforts to assure that student learning is deep, meaningful, and responsive to the uncertain, daunting, provocative, and intriguing circumstances faced by organizations today.
