Management & Leadership

Management and Leadership are similar in the sense that they encompass the same field, however more and more degrees are being specialized to concentrate on one or the other.  Leadership differs from management by focusing attention on steering and directing the course a company or workgroup may take. Management  students will generally concentrate on studying the day to day operations of organizations.

Both disciplines borrow from other areas of study and leads to a truly integrated degree.  Aspects of social sciences are often combined with management and business courses to provide a working knowledge of the business world in addition to exploring human tendencies. This is an effective way of understanding underlying concepts and principles that guide us and contribute to our dispositions.

These insights help management professionals effectively lead organizations, or groups within them.  A Bachelor's degree provides a well rounded approach to management and leadership and offers students a broad course of study to equip them for to be leaders in the workforce upon graduation.
