An Analysis of the Schools of Business Administration at the University of California, Berkeley.
This study is a preliminary analysis of the undergraduate and graduate Schools of Business Administration on the Berkeley campus of the University of California. The purpose of this investigation is to address some of the major policy questions facing these schools and to provide a basic framework for comparable analyses in other institutions. The paper begins by presenting the formal organization of the Schools and identifying who makes what decisions. Then it proceeds to discuss some concepts of decision theory which regard an organization from the points of view of the decision makers. It then examines several decision problems in an attempt to identify the decision makers' information needs. Any research activities as well as faculty promotion processes are explicitly excluded. The last chapter attempts to look at the Schools from the point of view of the Dean. Thus, some of the interdependencies that exist between the degree programs and the consequences of some policy questions of current interest are examined. (Author)
