human resource development, including human resource planning,
recruitment, selection, orientation, training, career development,
performance appraisal, compensation, incentives, union-management

The Bachelor's Degree
The bachelor of arts in management prepares students to become
organizational leaders, in the sense that today's organizations
need leaders at all levels. The program philosophy is based
on the premise that organizational leaders do more than
They understand that success, for individuals as well as
organizations, is largely based on how effective they are
in developing people
and that organizational success requires leaders who know
how to coach, mentor, and facilitate, rather than simply
Leaders in business, not-for-profit, and governmental organizations
face similar problems and challenges and thus need the
same core of leadership knowledge and skills to be effective.
Therefore, this degree is designed to develop critical
skills for successful performance in all types of organizations.
