Management - Program Requirements
Professor Kathleen Pereles on the Bachelor of Science in Management program at the Rohrer College of Business, Rowan University:
The Management Specialization prepares students for meaningful positions in management by providing them with a foundation for career growth. The management program is designed to provide a strong foundation in both traditional and innovative management skills in the areas of leading and supervising others, communicating clearly, and being able to analyze and solve organizational problems using both quantitative and qualitative information. It includes traditional classroom instruction, simulations, "real world" internships, lectures by management practitioners and working with academic advisors to develop and implement a course of study which meets each student's individual needs.
Students enrolled in the management program are expected (1) to learn important concepts, skills and techniques focused on leading and supervising other workers, (2) to be able to collect and evaluate relevant information - ethical, quantitative and qualitative - necessary to solve organizational problems; (3) to use critical thinking skills to design and implement solutions for organizational problems, (4) to improve their oral and written communication skills, and (5) to build their knowledge of how to design effective workplace teams.
The program emphasizes giving students the general management skills needed in the current workplace while recognizing the increasing importance of flexibility in designing the curriculum needed so that each individual student can mature into a manager who recognizes the importance of the legal, and ethical and social responsibilities of today's organizations, acquires the skills and tools which will give organizations a competitive advantage, understands the opportunities and implications of the globalization of the business environment, and has the knowledge and understanding to manage the new, diverse workforce.
