Management

Management Department

Paul Harvey teaching students

The study of management focuses on how organization members develop and use strategies, structures, and the accompanying social, political, economic, and technical processes needed to compete in national and global markets. Courses cover such topics as leadership, ethics, adaptation, innovation, organizational learning and change, human resource management, governmental policy making, and industrial economics. The department's approach to teaching involves educational methods that promote behavioral and analytic competence through experiential learning, self-awareness, theoretical mastery, and case studies. A major emphasis is on action learning through group projects.

 


The educational values, reflected in our teaching methods, include:

  • Behavioral competence through experiential learning and awareness of self.
  • Analytic insight emphasizing empowering theoretical mastery and case analysis.
  • Action orientation; a strong bias for action and an ability to learn in action moments in a continuous refinement of self-as-actor
  • Effective communication through developing oral, presentation, and written skillfulness.

Undergraduate Management Option

The Management Option provides students opportunities to develop a substantial foundation in the principles of managing the human, organizational, and capital resources of the firm in a strategic manner to enhance organizational competitiveness.
