USF Sarasota-Manatee will include additonal material in its version of this course and additional depth of material coverage over a 15 week semester to justify awarding the third credit for the course. The course at USF Sarasota-Manatee will have an additional 13 contact hours and spend much of the additional time on additional management topics including teamwork, creativity, vision, entrepreneurship, turnover, and sustainability. The 3-credit course will also include case discussions and student research presentations.
