In the Management Division, we help students and managers become entrepreneurial leaders who use Entrepreneurial Thought and Action® to think strategically, communicate effectively, mobilize and inspire powerfully, and take swift, confident action for meaningful change in organizations and society.
We teach in three broad academic areas—strategic management, leadership and organizational behavior, and management communication. Our division currently has over 25 full-time and 20 part-time faculty, a mix of scholars, serial entrepreneurs, former CEO’s, executive coaches, and consultants from some of the most prestigious companies in the world.
Through courses in strategic management, we help students and managers think strategically, holistically, and globally, identify and assess opportunities amidst uncertainty, develop value propositions, evaluate risk, solve problems, build business models and plans, and link analysis with action from the initial idea through launch, growth, and beyond.
Through courses in organizational behavior and leadership, we help students and managers understand who they are and what they know, and through experiential learning and coaching develop the skills to envision change amidst uncertainty, surmount complexity, manage diversity, and motivate teams in a common purpose to make a difference.
Through courses in management communication we use individualized assessment and feedback to help students and managers learn how to inspire, motivate and lead by speaking and writing powerfully across time zones, continents, and diverse cultures.
In everything we do, we believe that students and managers learn best through experience, and use a mix of cases, exercises, role-plays, and group projects to bring pragmatic concepts alive and help students and managers develop a flexible, entrepreneurial mindset and a bias toward action.
The Management Division is also the home for the Management Consulting Field Experience, an experiential program where undergraduates and MBA students learn how to provide impactful consulting to real organizations. We also lead the Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork Program, a unique experience for undergraduates where real managers observe and provide one-on-one coaching and feedback to individual students on key managerial competencies.
