The School of Business and Leadership's Department of Management Studies sets high expectations for our faculty - and for you, our students.
We expect you to learn what you need to know to attain personal success and fulfill your public responsibilities in a global and diverse society. We define educational quality by how well we achieve our mission relative to these student learning outcomes:
Students will analyze and apply the basic concepts and theories of management.
Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of a Christian worldview and values and how they relate to management principles.
Students will be able to communicate effectively in both an academic and business setting.
Students will be able to develop and apply research and problem solving capabilities applicable to management.
Students will be able to make educated/learned informed choices in both professional and personal areas of their lives that demonstrate understanding of Christian values.
A focus of achieved student learning is critical. The Department of Management Studies utilizes five categories of student learning assessment: (1) Pre/Post Exam, (2) Ethical Case Resolution, (3) Business Critical Thinking Skills Test, (4) Problem Solving Report, and (5) Pre/Post Christian Worldview. All are part of required assignments within applicable courses of the program.
