Departments and Faculty

The school's organization encourages empowerment across its constituent faculty through the disaggregation of responsibilities into departments. Departments work collaboratively to advance the school's mission while simultaneously working independently toward creating specific niche and distinctive competencies to ensure student and stakeholder success within the areas that are overseen.

Each department includes faculty members from all campus locations where the School of Management delivers its academic programs. This ensures a broad and diverse set of perspectives that impact positively on (a) curriculum development that includes a strong and uniform core component that forms the common experience for all students, regardless of location, and (b) highly contextualized curriculum elements embedded throughout the courses that are localized to the specific needs of the local business community where the program is delivered.

Vision and Mission Statements

The School of Management mission to "provide high quality, career advancing business education opportunities within the context of a dynamic, technologically enabled, and global business environment," supports the school's vision to "be a preeminent and distinguishable leader among institutions of higher education in the provision of internationally based academic business programs."

Unique and Innovative Business Education Programs

The School of Management operationalizes the school's mission through signaling its commitment to excellence by empowering undergraduate students with:

  • Business Technology
  • Experiential Education
  • Professional Enrichment
  • Entrepreneurship and Career Orientation
  • Community Impact

Business Technology is closely aligned with the professional workspace, and includes Bloomberg, Compustat, E-Views, Peachtree, Oracle/Peoplesoft, and SPSS, among others. In this way, students harness the transformational impact of technology on business with the long-term objective of creating value-adding contributions to their own businesses and that of their employers, upon graduation.

Experiential Education complements in-class instruction in diverse ways, including academic service learning, study abroad, faculty-mentored research, internships, solving real-world business challenges, and interacting directly with business leaders and industry partners. Interested students should speak directly to their advisor or the School of Management Director for Experiential Education to discuss specific opportunities offered each semester. Students must complete one experiential education activity in partial fulfillment of degree requirements (BUSI 495).

The Professional Enrichment Program complements traditional pedagogy with supplemental experiences during which our students meet and network with area specialists, learn from business leaders, and are exposed to contemporary and cutting-edge business issues that are not usually discussed in the classroom. In this way, students are exposed to those issues that currently impact local and global business enterprise, from the perspective of business leaders, with insights and perspectives offered that can be integrated into academic studies and professional endeavors. Secondly, the program offers workshops and activities designed to strengthen the professional polish of the student. These include the "mocktail social," "dress for success seminar," and "business etiquette workshop," among others. Interested students should speak directly to their advisor or the School of Management Director of Professional Enrichment to discuss specific opportunities offered each semester. Students are required to complete 20 PE and CI activities (combined) in partial fulfillment of degree requirements (BUSI 495).

Entrepreneurship and Career Orientation involves all course-level learning goals which are designed to support industry-driven objectives and are referenced by entrepreneurs and executives in the employment market. In this way, the school's academic programs are career oriented and designed to strengthen student business creation, job placement, and advancement in the workforce.

The Community Impact Program supports the school's commitment to student engagement in their educational experiences, cooperative learning, community engagement, and personal growth. The co-curricular program sponsors activities that engage students across varied platforms with their peers, faculty and staff, community members, and industry partners. Whether it is by way of clubs and honor societies, or field trips to the stock exchange, the program seeks out those activities that bring stakeholder groups together for the purpose of creating a vibrant community with synergies that advance the academic and professional aspirations of all participants. Students are required to complete 20 PE and CI activities (combined) in partial fulfillment of degree requirements (BUSI 495).

Career Building Platform
In support of the school's mission, the Career Building Platform, comprised of Professional Enrichment, Experiential Education, and Community Impact, has been developed to ensure student success. All students are advised to refer to the brochures for the components of the platform, and speak to their advisor or the directors of each program concerning their completion of activities in each program in partial fulfillment of degree requirements (BUSI 495).

School of Management Assurance of Learning

All students and organizations expect assurance that graduates of the School of Management are achieving the program's stated learning goals. In this spirit, the educational approach taken is one that is outcomes-based. Student learning outcomes are created across every course to validate and support the achievement of programmatic, concentration-specific, and course-level learning goals. These outcomes also strengthen the student's ability to make value-adding contributions to an organization.

Moreover, as previously mentioned, course-level learning goals and related outcomes for each class are designed to include invariant, contextual, and instructor-specific categories. In this way students receive learning experiences that are uniform across sections (invariant), globalized (contextual), and niche specific (instructor-specific), focusing on the specific domain expertise of the instructor.

The School of Management continually updates its curriculum so that it is both contemporary and competitive. Outcomes assessment is continuous, and inputs from students and all stakeholders are utilized to both revise academic programs as well as externally reference the curriculum for relevancy.
