College of Business & Economics
The Department of Management provides graduates with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful managers in a variety of organizational settings. We seek to develop graduates with global perspectives, ethical grounding, technological competency and a desire for lifelong learning.
We subscribe to the concept of continuous improvement, both as a value and as a process. We also promote interdisciplinary learning and experiential learning so the student can apply the knowledge to create solutions for challenges faced by organizations.
Ongoing curricula development ensures that course offerings and content reflect the current practices used and challenges faced by organizations. Since management is a broad field of study, concentrations in human resource management, international business and general management offer students a flexible course of study that can be individualized to meet their specific career objectives.
Without organized human activity, civilization cannot progress or hope to maintain the momentum toward progress. The two most critical elements of efficient and effective operations are management and leadership of organized activities in formal organizations.
The programs of study in management are designed to allow students to develop the critical marketable skills that employers seek. Courses and programs of study within the department emphasize the development of global awareness, ethical decision-making, technological competency and ongoing personal and professional development.
