Topics of interest in management include: decision-making and planning; organizing processes and resources for effective action; leading and motivating organization members; and the impact of technology in the workplace and the competitive environment. The faculty are dedicated, motivated, caring, experienced, and academically and professionally qualified; value meaningful student-faculty interaction; and search out and use current instructional resources and methods. Management faculty also emphasize expanding the boundaries of theory, practice, and teaching by engaging in basic, applied, and instructional research and providing service to the university, business, professional, and local communities.

The Department of Management offers a comprehensive undergraduate program in management through a variety of courses in organizations and management theory, human resources, operations and supply chain management, and strategic management.

Key topics in the major include recruiting, selecting, compensating, training, and appraising employees as part of strategic human resource management practices.

Developing a firm’s supply chain network, including the relationships and technology necessary to have the network operate and adapt efficiently and effectively, can be the difference between success and failure for many manufacturing and service firms. This major provides students with quantitative and conceptual tools that will facilitate effective management of their organization’s operations and supply chains.
