The School of Business and Management is excited to announce that professor Terri Champion’s latest publication, MGMT Principles of Management 3rd Canadian Edition is hot off the press.
Champion co-authored the Canadian edition of this introductory management textbook with professor Ike Hall from British Columbia Institute of Technology. The text is designed to provide students with little to no management experience to think like managers. It covers key topics like ethics and social responsibility, innovation and global management.
The text is paired with Nelson Publishers MindTap, an interactive learning system that provides students with online resources to enhance their interpersonal, problem-solving and critical thinking skills, preparing them for roles as future leaders.
As part of the development of this new edition, Champion wanted to ensure that students using this text were able to hear first-hand how some of the management topics discussed in the book were being applied in the real world of business, and from business leaders they could identify with. “I felt it was important for students to not only have insight from current managers in business, but also to be able to gain inspiration from individuals who not so long ago, were at the same point of their academic careers,” she explained.
Recent graduates from college business programs across Canada were interviewed and profiled in the opening vignettes of each chapter, providing their own thoughts on the topic at hand. Niagara College School of Business alumni Chris Sinclair (vice-president of Brand Blvd) and Mike Cameron (general manager of Newcap Radio) were both featured in the textbook.
“It was a great opportunity for our alumni to not only share their insight into the world of management but also to discuss the key takeaways they gained from their business education at Niagara College and help readers to imagine the possibilities for their own career paths,” said Champion.
Champion has worked at the College’s School of Business for almost 23 years. She has co-authored the first and second edition of the MGMT Management Principles texts, as well as Small Business Management (Nelson Publishers) fifth and sixth editions.
