Bachelor of Arts - Bachelor of Science
Minimum of five (5) years full time work experience is required for entrance to this major.
Effective management is required in organizations in all sectors of all economies. Organizations seek those individuals who have both people and process skills. The ORM is for working adults who want to enhance those skills. Each student is encouraged to understand their ways of learning in order to continue to grow their skills and abilities throughout their lifetime.
The Organization Management (ORM) major is a fast paced, year round program for adults who work full time. ORM majors are challenged to combine their prior learning (informal and non-formal) with theory, concepts, and history (formal learning) to maximize their effectiveness. Part of the process involves work in environments that are increasingly complex and reliant on participation in teams in which they will apply their learning to both hypothetical and actual challenges.
The Organization Management major places great emphasis on the behavioral and cultural underpinnings of management as well as the skills and tools needed to manage or support the key functions in organizations. The behavioral and cultural underpinnings are established or reinforced in Human Resource Management, Leadership, Ethics in Organizations, Organizational Development, and Innovation Management. Learning in Accounting, Statistics, Economics, Law, Management, Marketing, Finance, Management Information Systems, Global Business, International Business, and Policy and Strategy develops skills and tools for management or support of key organizational functions.
