The Department of Management offers a major in management. Students will complete the general education requirements (including business foundation courses) and business core requirements for the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree and 18 additional credits in the major. The instructional objective of the Management Department is to provide students with the knowledge of organizations, leadership activities within organizations, and entrepreneurial ideal and activities. Management majors will have an understanding of (1) employee work-related attitudes and behaviors, (2) challenges and strategies in international business, and (3) human resource management practices within firms. Students will demonstrate awareness for the role of diversity, ethics and technology in business decision making, the impact of external forces and global issues on organizations, and an ability to think critically, communicate effectively and work as an effective member of a team. Management is a broadly defined discipline and activity, which is neither industry nor function specific. Management concepts, theories, techniques, and skills are applicable to business functional areas and are essential for successful organizations regardless of whether the venture thrives in character as large or small, well-established or an entrepreneurial start-up. Management requires sound conceptual, technical, and human skills for the effective utilization of organizational resources. In addition to the basic business foundation and core courses, a management student has the option of participating in an organizational leadership or entrepreneurship track. Management majors are required to complete 18 credit hours of management or department-approved courses.
