Management, Innovation, & Entrepreneurship Courses

  • MIE 480 – The prerequisites for MIE 480 have been changed to corequisites. The update lagged behind the publication of the course schedule so if you had MIE 480 in your cart, you might need to delete it and re-add it prior to registration for the requisites to work correctly.
  • MIE 495-001 – Human Resources Analytics will explore the use of analytics for decision making concerning talent acquisition, talent management, employee relations, compensation, benefits, training, and development. This course will count as a concentration elective for the Human Resources concentration.

Other credit options – there are several other 1-3 credit Poole course options for students that will count as free electives that we encourage students to consider.

  • M 120 – Professional Development and Career Planning (1 credit) is a great course for sophomores or juniors or new entrants to Poole who want to engage in career exploration and develop tools necessary to start their career. This course is restricted to only students currently in a Poole major.
  • BUS 225 – Personal Finance is an essential course for any student who wants to learn about economic and financial strategies for post-college life. It will count as a free elective for any major.
