The Management Department prepares students to be effective managers capable of adding value to a wide range of organizations and business contexts in the global economy employing an entrepreneurial approach to business.

We emphasize the development of versatile skills that are essential to achieving organizational goals: analytical problem-solving, communication skills, cross-functional thinking, leadership, ethical decision-making, and teamwork.


Management majors are equipped with interpersonal skills needed to thrive in a collaborative team environment and can handle situations requiring complex ethical judgments.


Management majors develop mindset and skillset to approach problems in unique ways, explore new opportunities, and lead through innovation in both new and established companies.


Management majors can analyze complex strategic problems that cut across multiple functions and develop effective solutions by integrating diverse perspectives.
