Management Major

 The management major is designed for students who envision embarking on a career that will lead them into organizational management. The theme of the Department of Management is value creation. As both a discipline and a process, the theoretical paradigms and frameworks upon which managers create value provide a strong foundation for our scholarly research and innovative instruction. The development of an organization’s people, technology, and cross-functional processes, as well as their subsequent interaction, facilitate the internal environment necessary to create value. For effective value creation, these activities must be consistent with each other and with the organization’s strategy. In addition, value-creating activities must transform over time to meet the changing demands of the external environment. Therefore, effective management requires an understanding of the dynamics of the internal environment, monitoring of the external environment, and the evolving process of strategic implementation. Thus, the management curriculum is to develop the student’s proficiency in resource evaluation, resource allocation, and resource management. This mission theme recognizes all organizational inputs (i.e., human resources, financial resources, physical resources, and knowledge, informational and systems resources) as resources that must be managed for an organization to function effectively.

The curriculum is under constant review by the faculty to insure that its combination of business, technical, and behavioral courses remain relevant to the ever-changing business environment and global economy, and prepares the management major to meet the challenges they would likely face in either the private, public, or non-profit sectors. The student majoring in management is provided with program flexibility in tailoring their individual programs toward degree and career objectives. Each course within the management major has been designed to provide the student with specific and discrete content while also demonstrating the course’s applicability to the overall mission theme.

Students who choose management as their area of concentration must satisfy all requirements for the BBA degree. As a part of the BBA degree program, these students must satisfy the management major requirement and a contextual studies requirement. The individual seeking to major in the Management discipline is required to take all courses required for the Management major, including the BBA core, in residence at the University of North Florida. Transfer credit may be accepted only on an exception basis through the petition process.
