Organizational management concentrates on developing the art and science of getting things accomplished through people. Students who study organizational management are capable of coordinating and facilitating the work of others to accomplish goals that may not be achieved by a single individual. To be effective managers, students must understand organizations and the organizations’ culture, recognize the many roles managers can take and understand the techniques that effectively guide individuals and teams. We bring together faculty and students as co-learners committed to understanding different types of organizations.
An organizational management degree provides opportunities in many fields, including business, education, government and the non-for-profit sectors, among many more. Our courses explore organizational areas such as human resources, operations, marketing, academia and technology. Many jobs in organizational management require that candidates quickly develop credibility with colleagues, have excellent interpersonal skills and demonstrate exemplary public presentation skills.
