This course aims to be a first approach to the knowledge of the company by addressing a series of basic and fundamental aspects that can be the subject of a more in-depth study in higher courses. The general objective is to provide a global and integrated vision of the company in the more general context of the economic and social system in which it operates. Throughout the course, the knowledge of a complex reality such as the company will be approached through the study of the different subsystems that compose it, analyzing the interrelationships that occur among them. Teaching methodologies will be proposed to provide an integrated view of the functioning of the company.
