Business Law Business Simulation: The Interactive Law Experience

Successful business management requires one to be knowledgeable in a variety of fields. Most people assume a manager must have a basic understanding of marketing, finance and operations, and may neglect another important field, law. The three lettered word has a huge impact on how a business runs. To ignore it would be a grave mistake.

According to the Houston Chronicle, businesses in the United States can choose from many different models, styles and types of growth, but they are still structured and directed by government regulation. A large number of laws affect businesses, defining illegality and misconduct or setting financial and operational codes for a business to follow. Some examples of impactful business laws fall into categories such as regulatory, tax, labor and reporting.

Students have a chance to gain foundational business law knowledge, specifically for technology managers. PriSim Business War Games is hosting an interactive learning workshop, Business Law for Technical Managers, on February 27th from 1pm-4pm at NU Technology Institute, room L482.
