Management

Management is everywhere, from organizing your personal life to directing a large corporation. Effective managers are important to an organization's success because they coordinate plans, business processes, budgets, and people. They create business success and positive experiences for employees and customers.

Our program focuses on studying human and other resources, and ways the manager plans, organizes, staffs, and evaluates those resources.
