This course considers the fundamentals of management and how managers can be effective in organizational settings. Based on D. Quinn Mills' book, Principles of Management, a text used at Harvard Business School, this course addresses managing in the modern organization.

"I have enrolled in many online courses over the years and some of them stand out. Managing in a Modern Organization is a spectacular course. I especially liked the powerful combination of written material, interactive media, and videos. The two short videos by Quinn Mills say more in four minutes than some people say in an entire book."

— Clifford Smith
