Looking at the CEO Michael Critelli QUESTION Undergraduate Education as Preparation The Bachelor’s in communications and political science was thechoice. Communication is the art of enclosing and coding information. The information is then transferred from source to recipient. A channel has to be established for the information to travel. This is a continuous involved process. This is true because there must be feedback. The object it to have some common ground between the parties. An effort has to be made to avoid the barriers to communication.
Two such barriers are overload and complexity. The overload is when too much information is passed. This results in not enough time to assimilate the information. The complexity problem is when the information picture impact is not fully evaluated. The communication picture is the sharing and transfer of ideas. Political science is the study of human behavior. One of the main things humans do is to communicate constantly. The study is about individuals. It is also the study about organization in the society.
This s This combination of knowledge made it possible to develop thinking skills in science and the arts. This is achieved by studying patterns in behavior. The patterns can be related to individuals or to organizations. This has been a great help to the CEO. The undergraduate education in social sciences can have lasting effects (Ishiyama, J. 2005).
