Program description

Management

The majority of the faculty in the Department of Management has extensive practical experience within their specialties. They’ve dealt first hand with the challenges businesses and corporations face, and have a passion for sharing their knowledge. They’re committed to nurturing the professional development of students to increase their knowledge, skills, initiative, integrity and sense of teamwork required in the workplace.

Management is one of the most dynamic roles in any successful organization. All organizations need managers, leaders who are responsible for setting the long-term direction for the organization and managing the day-to-day activities to ensure success. Managers must be attuned to the organization’s environment to be vigilant for opportunities that allow the organization to grow in order to fulfill customers’ needs. Managers must also be aware of the organization’s resources and strengths and take action to continuously improve the organization.

All businesses and not-for-profit organizations need effective managers. Organizations need general managers who oversee the entire operation and managers who specialize in the various functional areas, such as accounting, finance, human resources, marketing, legal, and operations.

Managers must have effective communication, analytical, and motivational skills. It is the manager’s responsibility to hire the best employees, and to develop and retain employees. Our curriculum prepares individuals to be effective managers in many types of organizations.

For students who are creative and want to establish their own companies, the entrepreneurship concentration will meet your needs.
