Program Objectives and Student Outcomes

Mission of the Management Program
The mission of the Management Program is to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are essential for success in management careers. Traditionally, managers set the goals of their organizations and decide how best to achieve them by allocating the necessary human, financial, physical, and information resources. Managers also coordinate work among members of the organization, provide leadership and motivation, and monitor progress toward achieving their organizations' goals. While the program focus is on the professional manager, much of what is learned in the classroom is applicable to students’ lives outside of work. Hence, the purpose of the Management Program is for students to learn how the combination of managing self and managing others translates into successfully managing organizations.
