"In every business, in every industry, management does matter." - Michael Eisner



As the Chair of the Department of Management, I am excited to share with you what we do. We are home to a diverse and talented faculty with a long-established history of teaching excellence, international research acclaim, and dedicated service to the College, University, and the community. Our department is comprised of Organizational Behavior, Human Resource Management, Strategic Management, Information Systems, and Operations Management disciplines. Our topics span the breadth of the business spectrum, whatever your interests and career goals.


Our faculty genuinely care about students and ensure that the learning environment has opportunities for transformational service learning, community service, undergraduate research/independent studies, study abroad programs, and internships. It’s truly what we do best, and we hope you will come experience it firsthand.


The Management faculty are engaged in cutting edge research and serve in leadership positions in professional associations and academic journal editorial boards. A large percent of our faculty are active in the research community, producing scholarship with national and international reach. They have won several prestigious awards and research grants. The Management faculty are also engaged in giving back to the community through consulting at the local, state, and federal levels.


Finally, the Management Faculty are highly engaged University and community citizens. They are dedicated Ospreys who devote their valuable time to serve the University. In addition, they develop programming for the community. All of which serve as evidence of our well-rounded faculty who are devoted members of the Coggin family and role models for our current and future Ospreys.


I hope you take the time to look around our webpage and familiarize yourself with all the Management department has to offer. If you’re interested in pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in management major or one of our minors, I encourage you to reach out to myself and/or our talented faculty to discuss the opportunities available to you. If you’ve graduated and are looking for a way to engage or re-engage with our Department we encourage you to reach out as there are many ways in which you can make a tangible difference in the lives of our students, faculty, and staff.
