Our mission is to educate students who contribute to the creation of effective, efficient, and preferred workplaces. Management graduates understand the why and how of designing a work environment that motivates employees to work hard, achieve success, and lead by example as socially responsible, global-minded, innovative business people. The Faculty in the Management Department implements this mission through publishing in top-tier academic journals, providing value-added teaching and instruction, guiding students through meaningful advising and service, and developing and maintaining long-term, mutually enriching relations with the community.
Management, defined as "getting things done through people", involves the four managerial activities of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. The Management Department offers undergraduate and graduate degrees based on curricula that allow students to develop knowledge and applied skills related to these activities. The Management faculty consists of dedicated and mission-driven faculty members who publish cutting-edge research in the areas of Organizational Behavior, Strategic Management, Decision-Making, Human Resource Management, Entrepreneurship, International Business, and Business Ethics.
The undergraduate curriculum in management prepares students for success in entrepreneurial endeavors, for entry-level management positions and a broad variety of careers in business including careers in human resource management, sales, and project management. The Management faculty teaches most of the curriculum in the MBA program which prepares students for advanced management positions.
The Management faculty members are among the most distinguished in the College in the areas of research and teaching. Our faculty regularly receives teaching and mentoring awards in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. Selfless service as well as student and community engagement are central to the culture among the faculty in the Management Department. We strive as a Department to put students first and ensure that they build a foundation for success for the rest of their lives while in our undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
In addition to degrees at the undergraduate and graduate level that prepare students for managerial responsibilities in all sizes of organizations, we offer a highly ranked online Executive Masters of Business Administration program for students who are interested in expanding upon their operational knowledge of business.
