What is management?

Industries around the world are in need of decision-makers and problem-solvers. Fortune 500 companies and non-profit organizations alike are in need of strategic managers. Management is the process of ensuring that a company is able to operate in both the immediate and near future, by making decisions that will impact an organization on every level. These decisions range from hiring a new employee to taking a company public. Management is not an easy field, and good managers are highly sought after. Our management program focuses on the critical competencies and interpersonal skills needed to be a successful change-agent in any organization.
