Management is the most broadly focused of Stonehill’s Business majors. Building on the strong business core curriculum, students study human resources management along with managerial negotiations and decision making. They then are able to select an additional four courses in the major that are closely tailed to their personal career path.
The role of management is to guide and direct an organization toward accomplishing it goals. Its primary functions include planning, organizing, leading and controlling.
The Management Program at Stonehill is designed to provide students with basic knowledge in each of these areas using several tools:
- Case studies
- Classroom lectures and discussions
- Community-based learning projects
- Computer simulations
- Team projects
- Research reports
Because of the general nature of the concentration, it not only meets the needs of students seeking a management career but also serves those students who have yet to select a career direction and are primarily interested in a broad-based exposure to business administration.
