Minor in management


In response to great demand from our student body, the Department of Management and Marketing has designed a minor in Management. This minor is intended to enhance our students’ area of expertise, through acquiring knowledge of management theory and its application, which will allow them to be successful members in the global environment. The world we live in is marked by rapid change. To cope with this rapid geometrically increasing flux, both managers and employees need to handle change as well as manage the day-to-day functions in the market-driven economy.
For those students who come from a business background, this minor will enhance their scope and depth in the managerial area. For those who come from another background, a minor in Management will expose them to the key managerial functions of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling, and, in doing so, will increase their level of efficiency and effectiveness in the work context.

Learning Outcomes:

Having obtained a minor in Management, the student will now:

  • Use analytic-thinking skills in evaluating management methods and practices, current literature in the management field, and contemporary management models and theories.
  • Make effective use of planning, decision-making, and strategic skills in the context of efficient companies.
  • Have a working knowledge of traditional organizations and the management practices to run them.
  • Understand the importance of the contemporary organization structure, of leading, and of controlling in management.
  • Become aware of the practical and intellectual benefits and drawbacks of using team-based management
  • Apply basic management concepts in the case study method.
