Department of Management

Welcome to the Department of Management

Choose Your Path....... Create Your Future.

In concert with the Ignatian vision of intellectual excellence informed by conscience, our mission as the Department of Management is to develop leaders who have a broad, value-oriented perspective, and who are able to integrate many dimensions of organizations--behavioral, cultural, economic, environmental, ethical, historical, international, legal, and structural--in making balanced and responsible decisions that affect their organizations, their stakeholders, and themselves. We prepare students to continue in life as creative, highly skilled and intellectually curious learners who exhibit rigorous, moral, and stakeholder-based discernment in their actions and decision-making.

Toward fulfilling our mission, the management faculty is committed to listen and advise you toward achieving your goals and objectives. Your job as student is to proactively take advantage of our expertise and willingness to help.

Major and Minor in Leadership, Ethics and Organizational Sustainability (LEO)
The objective of this major is to develop leaders whose goal is to lead and work for the Greater Good. Leading for the greater good entails awareness of and striving for success as defined by the widely accepted sustainability planet/people/profit triple bottom-line. The skills acquired by students graduating with this major (e.g. leadership, creativity, strategic decision-making, resource management, critical analysis, strategic planning, and broad world-view) are all attractive and relevant in a traditional corporate environment as well as a natural fit for students who wish to embark on a career in non-profit management.

Major and Minor in Managing Human Capital (MHC)
The goal of this proposed major and minor is to develop managers who lead human capital-centric/high-involvement organizations. In addition to simply attracting, developing, and retaining the best talent, creating a human-capital centric organization involves organizing and managing people so that they perform in ways that lead to excellent organizational performance. In addition to developing future managers, this major is also a pathway for students who more specifically aspire to a career in Human Resource Management or Talent Management.  Contact: Dr. Lucy Ford, lford@sju.edu  Meet the MHC Faculty
