Department of Management

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, management consulting, 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.

The objective of the Management and Strategy Doctoral Program (MSDP) is to prepare students for research-oriented academic positions. The MSDP program is built on a strong foundation that consists of a critical mass of research-oriented faculty and a strong research climate. The program is cross-disciplinary by building on the faculty and research in both Management and Strategy. Students receive a foundation in both Management and Strategy with the ability to focus on developing a research competence in a chosen field of study.
