The Department of Management provides courses and other academic support for the B.S. degree with concentrations in entrepreneurship and business development, human resource management, management and leadership.
The entrepreneurship and business development concentration is designed to prepare students with the skills needed to launch their own business or to manage entrepreneurial initiatives for existing firms. EBD majors are challenged to pursue development of their own business ideas, seek employment with emerging ventures or become involved in corporate entrepreneurship. The department also offers a minor in entrepreneurship and innovation for non-business majors.
The human resource management concentration equips students with the skills needed to maximize the efforts and productivity of the firm’s human resources through effective recruitment, retention, organizational design, training and development, diversity, total compensation and performance management. Graduates are prepared for entry level careers in human resources management.
The management and leadership concentration prepares students to analyze competitors, motivate employee behavior and coordinate activities of complex business organizations. Particular emphasis is placed on ethical decision making, leadership skills, a global perspective, interpersonal capabilities, environmental analysis, goal setting, performance assessment and corporate governance.
