Courses provided by the Department of Management and Organizations focus on issues that arise in management situations and how to deal with these issues. Students examine ways in which people work as individuals, as group members, and as organization members. They also examine how organizations can be positioned strategically, and how environmental conditions impact and change the nature of strategically advantageous positions. The overall aim of the management course program is to help students develop an ability to analyze and discuss management issues so that they appreciate what is required to implement action in organizational contexts.
All organizational careers involve the management of individuals and groups. The management program is designed to provide students with the knowledge they need to be effective managers. Students learn to view the organization as a whole, to evaluate overall needs, and to define supporting objectives. They develop an outlook that enables them to perceive and anticipate developing needs for change.
As management always involves people, courses present the most recent theories concerned with human behavior along with current practices that affect and influence behavior in work organizations.
The management course program complements the more specialist focus that necessarily characterizes courses in other functional areas. It helps students prepare and succeed in a managerial career that is based on but not limited to a functional specialization.
