The Department of Management
The Business Management Department provides studies in broad-based management education, allowing flexibility in varied management level careers sought by private and public employers. The objective is to develop the student's understanding of management as both an art and a science, together with managerial skills essential for positions of leadership and responsibility in today's dynamic environment. The management major promotes a generalist interdisciplinary approach that prepares students to work in any business organization. It also allows students, in collaboration with their academic advisor to personalize their plan of study through specialization in a minor or a variety of business and non-business related electives.
Students may take an emphasis in Human Resources Management. With workforce management becoming an increasingly prominent field throughout industries and work places worldwide, the Human Resources Management emphasis strengthens the business management major. Students are prepared in management of employees at all organizational levels. Emphasis is on staffing, training and development, labor relations, compensation and benefits, legal aspects of human resources management and selection and recruitment. This is a highly recruited area for undergraduate students. The faculty advises students on the selection of courses for areas of concentration and monitors their academic progress.
