Faculty  

 

The Department of Management provides the education required to obtain both the MBA and PhD degrees. The focus of the MBA degrees is toward the application of theory and research in organizational settings; the focus of the PhD degrees is toward the development of skills necessary for academic research and college teaching.

Individuals wishing to obtain an MBA that will broaden their experience beyond their specializations can pursue an MBA in Business Administration. Those who desire specific areas of specialization may meet their goals through an MBA with a major in business administration and concentrations in health services management, organizational behavior and human resource management, or strategic management. The specialized degree programs are based on guidelines offered by the Human Resources Certification Institute, the Society of Human Resources Management and the Association of University Programs in Health Administration.  

Individuals seeking a PhD will take course work that provides an extensive and rigorous program of study in the management discipline, research methods and college teaching. Major areas of study include strategic management, human resources management, organizational behavior and organizational theory.
