The Management program is a broad-based program enabling students to understand how organizations operate in the contemporary global environment. Management students acquire an understanding of the external environment of business and how it affects the internal activities of an enterprise. Drawing on management theory as well as current business practices, students develop knowledge, skills and competencies that will enable them to assume positions in a wide variety of industries and organizations. The Management curriculum places special emphasis on personal ethical accountability and corporate social responsibility.
In addition to coursework in business disciplines such as accounting, economics, finance, law, marketing, management information systems and operations management, students complete management courses that explore how resources – whether human, information, technology, knowledge or materials – all strategically combine to achieve the goals of an organization. Communication, teamwork and leadership skills needed in managerial roles are emphasized across the curriculum.
All Management students are encouraged to complete an internship and are offered an array of experiential learning opportunities. Sacred Heart University also offers the MBA degree (Master of Business Administration). Qualified students can complete both the BS and MBA degrees in a special five-year MBA program and an accelerated bachelor's-master's degree program in Human Resource Management.
In addition, a Minor in Business, Minor in Global Business Management, Minor in Human Resource Management, Minor in Management, and Minor in Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship are offered. The minors are an excellent augment to most non-business majors and provides a fundamental education in business.
The courses in the Management program are offered by knowledgeable and experienced professors who are active not only in the classroom but also through research, policy advising and consulting. Faculty members collaborate with both domestic and international academic institutions and professional organizations, serve on boards of directors, and provide consulting and training to numerous types of organizations.
