A focus on organizational leadership

In the world of business, managers are a critical. Effective organizations require leaders who understand and can shape organizational culture, can adapt to or inspire change, can identify and implement effective strategies, and are capable of coordinating and facilitating the efforts of others to accomplish organizational goals.

The Department of Management at the David Eccles School of Business delivers an undergraduate management degree designed to provide you with a deeper understanding of leadership, and a broad conceptual understanding of the challenges managers and leaders face in the 21st century. A degree in management gives you the advantage you need to succeed in competitive business environments.

Degrees in Management

Many of our students — undergraduates and graduate — are motivated by an in-depth exploration of organizational leadership, and demonstrate an interest in developing the skills to inspire, motivate and lead others to accomplish organizational objectives. As management always involves people, our courses emphasize the most recent theories concerned with human behavior, along with current, innovative practices that cultivate leaders who can adapt to rapidly changing business climates. Our graduates are prepared to assume leadership roles that are essential in tackling the myriad professional challenges of tomorrow, as well as the uncertainty confronting organizations today.
