In concert with the Ignatian vision of intellectual excellence informed by conscience, our mission as the Department of Management is to develop leaders who have a broad, value-oriented perspective, and who are able to integrate many dimensions of organizations--behavioral, cultural, economic, environmental, ethical, historical, international, legal, and structural--in making balanced and responsible decisions that affect their organizations, their stakeholders, and themselves. We prepare students to continue in life as creative, highly skilled and intellectually curious learners who exhibit rigorous, moral, and stakeholder-based discernment in their actions and decision-making.

The department offers majors and minors in International Business; Family Business and Entrepreneurship; Leadership, Ethics and Organizational Sustainability; Managing Human Capital and a major in Business Administration.
