Management

At the Shields School of Business, the study of management prepares students to manage profit and non-profit organizations. Major thinkers and practitioners teach students to draw knowledge from classical principles of management, as well as through diverse fields such as psychology and sociology.

    The success of any organization ultimately lies in its people and management. Managers develop objectives, organize resources, and influence through leadership. Management is a challenging and dynamic field with limitless opportunities in industries of every size and type.

    Career Opportunities

    As managers are needed in every organization at every level, career opportunities are plentiful and varied. Students can customize their education to better suit their career objectives in many ways, either by pairing their degree with one of the many options for minors or concentrations, or selectively choosing their electives in other ways so as to improve their marketability to future employers. In this respect, the students’ advisor will work closely with them to customize their education so as to prepare them for the career they desire. Saint Francis Management graduates begin careers in a wide range of organizations across the U.S. and internationally. Some also choose to continue their education and pursue their MBA degree either at Saint Francis, through our five year Management to MBA program, or at other institutions, while others pursue their own entrepreneurial ventures, starting the small businesses that are the engine of the U.S. economy. Regardless of their path, the faculty of the School of Business remains at their service to provide advice and guidance to support their continued success.
