This is a dedicated web page for the standard course on Logic. The course is designed for BBA/MBA students with a focus on managerial models, implications and issues. A 3 credit hours course designed for 45 lectures in 15 weeks, it takes the audience through a systematic journey in the field of critical thinking and reasoning


This unit aims to ensure that students acquire a perspective on how to evaluate circumstances and issues from multiple perspectives and critical evaluate solutions through systematic reasoning based on logic. Managers are typically facing the challenge to criticism and arguments may arise during day to day managerial operations; they need to adhere to logical propositions and avoid fallacies. In addition, an understanding of the use of logic can be a major factor in improving organizational and personal productivity and relationships at and beyond work.  This course provides the participants with an understanding of logic concepts, frameworks, and models for defining problems and corresponding solutions, managing complex activities, and describing technical and conceptual compositions of daily reasoning.  Learning will be accomplished through lectures, case studies, group presentation, and research.
