To compete in the global economy, leaders, managers and knowledge workers must understand the organization and the dynamic environment in which it functions.
Toward that end, the Department of Management supports research and teaching related to understanding the drivers of personal and organizational success. Topics of interest include organizational behavior and development, leadership, management of human resources, teams, entrepreneurship, and executive behavior. We embrace the view that management research is best conducted in an inter-disciplinary context.
Our faculty publish research in top journals, focus on teaching as a core competency, serve as editors and editorial board members for a variety of journals, engage in executive education, and actively consult with multiple organizations. They are active in their professional organizations as officers, members of editorial boards, manuscript reviewers for journals, session chairs, and discussants at professional meetings.
As professional educators they are committed to having a significant impact on theory and practice through research and teaching.
