The management department's focus is to prepare students to be both effective business leaders and responsible citizens, and to assume executive positions across a variety of business and non-business organizations. To that end, the department has designed its curriculum to provide students with the knowledge, skills and experience base to equip them to fill those roles. The main goals of the major and minor programs are to:
Educate students about a conceptual framework for creating, organizing and managing a business enterprise in this global environment
Teach students the intrapersonal and interpersonal skills necessary to manage individuals, groups and teams in the efficient and effective running of an organization in a culturally diverse environment
Facilitate student understanding of the integration of qualitative and quantitative management skills in planning, decision making and implementation
Access cocurricular opportunities for students to apply and practice management concepts learned.
