This course is intended to introduce students to cooperatives as a form of business enterprise. Cooperatives are important in many segments of the economy, both in the U.S. and elsewhere. Students will learn the role of cooperatives in market-oriented economies like the U.S. and will become familiar with cooperative principles, the economic theory of cooperatives, and the fundamentals of co-op operations including accounting principles, financing, decision making, and taxation. Focus will be primarily upon traditional agricultural cooperatives; however, other types of cooperatives will be examined in some detail during the second half of the course.

Students may then set their own password and security questions, choose to forward emails to a different account, and activate their NDSU Live account.
