The home of the Management Leadership major is the Department of Management. No one can dispute the importance of a student’s major at the beginning of his or her career, but in the Department of Management we also believe in the increasing importance of broader knowledge, a more expansive repertoire of business skills and lifelong learning. We emphasize excellence in course content and teaching methods in our programs: experiential learning, client-based class structures and real-world problem-solving are important tools that we use to shape our students into career-minded, successful individuals. We are proud of the national attention these efforts have attracted.

This website provides you with extensive detail on both of our majors (Human Capital Management and Leadership as well as Supply Chain & Operations Management.
