About Our Department

The Department’s research and teaching focus on a range of management topics including individual and group behavior, teamwork, diversity and inclusion, leadership, organizational change and culture, entrepreneurship, strategy, and business ethics. We also focus on the complex relationships between business and society including corporate social responsibility, climate change, globalization, and the role of the government in regulating the economy.

Our courses and programs focus on the development of critical interpersonal skills relating to communication, negotiation, conflict resolution, decision-making, leading teams, fostering innovation, and promoting the inclusion of a diverse range of people. We also teach skills that prepare students to develop long-term strategies to prepare for ever changing external challenges.

Students will be well-prepared for a range of organizational and leadership roles in established corporations, startups, consulting firms, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and social enterprises. Our alumni work as account executives, project directors, human resource managers, top level executives, mid-level managers, consultants, sustainability officers, and recruiters—several have even started their own firms.
