Overview
The management department’s curriculum is designed to provide the student with the knowledge, skills, and perspectives necessary in managerial and administrative positions in a variety of organizations, both commercial and not-for-profit.

To accomplish this goal, the student’s program includes courses in three areas: the university’s general education requirements to obtain an appreciation of and perspective on the liberal arts and sciences; the business core to obtain a sound knowledge of all functional areas of business organizations as well as the social, economic, and legal environments of organizations; and the courses to provide in-depth study of management.

The management major consists of seven courses. Four of these courses are required of all students who receive a major in management. The remaining three courses form one of three possible options:

  • The human resource management option is offered for those students who want to pursue careers in departments such as human resource management, employee relations, or personnel.
  • The supervisory management option is offered for students seeking management knowledge prerequisite for supervisory positions in industrial, service, retail, and wholesale type organizations.
  • The small business management and entrepreneurial option is offered for students who plan to pursue a career in a small business or who have the goal of starting a small business.


Mission
To provide students with the knowledge, perspectives, and competencies necessary to understand and practice management as a generic process in all types of organizations and, thus, to prepare them for future managerial positions.

A 2.3 cumulative grade point average for all courses completed is required in order to receive a baccalaureate degree for a program offered in the ASB, as well as a grade point average of 2.0 or higher in all courses in the major.

 

Learning Outcomes

A graduate of the Management Department’s majors should:

  • Possess a knowledge of the fundamental concepts of management as an organizational process
  • Display the communication skills, both written and oral, used in business and organizational settings
  • Recognize ethical challenges and ethical actions in organizational settings
  • Possess the skills to work effectively in groups and teams
