Mission: Developing Lifelong Leaders for the World of Business
General description: The Department of Management in the COBI is a growing department that houses the Leadership and the Human Resources majors. Students are able to pursue their objectives of learning about managerial theory and practice. We pride ourselves on having the highest concentration of Outstanding University Teachers because of our dedication to providing the best service to our undergraduate and graduate students. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing undergraduate and graduate students with an excellent educational experience while simultaneously contributing to the management domain through research-based scholarship.
Accreditations: AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), HLC (Higher Learning Commission).
Number of credit hours required to graduate: Common Body of Knowledge Courses: 18 hours Required Core Courses: 24 hours Electives Courses: 12 hours Total credit hours: 54 hours
The Leadership Major is designed to prepare students who want broad exposure to a variety of courses, rather than majoring in a specific functional area. It allows the student more flexibility, both with schedules and with preparation to assume any number of entry-level management positions.
We offer courses and experiences focused on action-oriented opportunities to help graduate students understand the field of management. This approach gives students a strong foundational knowledge that could be applied immediately after graduation.
