Corporate View is a series of text/simulations that use a live corporate Intranet. Students learn to communicate and understand corporate terminology, research and make business decisions, use the Internet and corporate Intranet as office tools, and work in real and virtual teams. The Corporate View titles can be used in any order, independently or jointly. Corporate View: Orientation is not a prerequisite to the other titles. Students, working as interns, rotate through the major departments of a large corporation in Corporate View: Orientation. Students engage in realistic, online activities typically performed by entry-level employees in the various departments of a large corporation.
