All careers involve the management of individuals and groups. The management program is designed to provide students with both practical skills and an understanding of the underlying theory that will make you an effective individual contributor and manager. You will learn to view the business as a whole, to evaluate the overall needs of an organization (for-profit, and not-for-profit and government) and to define supporting objectives. You will develop an outlook that enables you to perceive and anticipate opportunities to innovate and the need 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 specialized focus that necessarily characterizes courses in other functional areas. It helps students prepare and succeed in a managerial career that leverages but is not limited to a functional specialization.
Students may pursue a concentration, seek a management-related specialization, or put management coursework together with other Stern business disciplines to pursue an in-depth track.
