The Department of Management and Entrepreneurship offers those who pursue a major through the department an opportunity to prepare themselves deliberatively, rationally, and intentionally to develop careers as principled leaders in their future endeavors. Engagement in management and entrepreneurship classes within the department prepares students to lead diverse individuals, recognize opportunities, and make sound critical decisions as they proceed in their career.
The Department offers two majors: business administration and management. The Department is also responsible for two minors: business administration and entrepreneurship. The curriculum builds the basics of business fundamental knowledge, ethical decision-making and allows students to recognize the trends of today’s business environment. Students are exposed to a unique blend of classroom and applied experiential learning opportunities to aid them in selecting and helping prepare them for their chosen career in today’s dynamic economy.
As a principled manager and entrepreneur, students will develop the knowledge and skills to build trust, inspire commitment, lead change, work in and lead teams, harness people’s creativity and enthusiasm, recognize opportunities, find shared vision and values, share authority and responsibility.
The program provides content and guidance regarding how to assess the moral and ethical dimensions of business decisions in a principled manner. All students in the Management and Entrepreneurship Department are strongly encouraged to do an industry internship—this is supervised work experience related to their desired career objective.
