Modern organizations, both for-profit and not-for-profit, are more complex than ever before: Managers must be adept at topics as disparate as ethics, leadership, strategy, human resources, finance, supply chain management and globalization. At UND, you'll learn the principles of management at the same time you study all the different aspects of business. As a student in UND's Management program, you'll learn how to:

  • Organize and lead teams
  • Generate goals and strategies
  • Motivate and develop employees
  • Evaluate performance
  • Make strategic decisions
  • Manage technology and work processes
  • Understand the unique contributions of effectively managed supply chains
  • Analyze data for effective decision making

By the time you graduate, you'll have the ability to analyze and solve management problems regardless of the field you enter.
