Study and Practice Effective Management

Managing people, projects, and programs requires a considerable range of knowledge and skills. Effective managers must understand the business, be interpersonally competent, behave ethically, and diagnose and deal with human and organizational dynamics. Assemble the right toolbox with concentration courses that emphasize “how to” manage effectively. By choosing to study management in depth, you'll learn the principles of motivation, leadership, negotiation, conflict resolution, project management, managing teams, organizational change, and their impact on business results. Some of your courses will be primarily skills oriented; they teach "how to." Others are more content oriented; they teach "about management."
