Courses that served me well

Two of the most interesting, and it turns out most useful courses, I took at McCombs Business School in 1968 were Business Law I & II. We studied the Uniform Commercial Code and how it governed business transactions and contacts. I learned how to read and understand contracts and specifications, and to research case law and judicial decisions. Those skills served me well in my career managing large design and construction projects for educational institutions. I also remember taking an Income Tax Accounting and Procedure course that I thought would be really boring, and it was fascinating. Instead of just studying income tax forms and accounting, we learned about the rationale behind different parts of the income tax code, and what the intended economic effect would be for those tax policies. It gave me a different way of looking at income tax.
