The Management and Organizations (M&O) department develops bold ethical leaders who address the complex and ever-changing challenges in the global business environment. While our courses primarily focus on for-profit businesses, our students graduate more than ready to lead transformational change in a variety of settings—from nonprofits and religious organizations, to governmental agencies and social groups, there’s no limit to the practical application of the skills and knowledge our students gain.

Through a curriculum that examines organizational phenomenon from a multi-disciplinary perspective, our students are prepared to deliver innovative and collaborative solutions for strategic, global, political, economic, socio-cultural, and environmental issues. To accomplish this, our faculty stress the importance of developing inclusive, forward-thinking leaders who can understand, anticipate, and navigate such challenges and find ways to create better and more sustainable places to work across the globe.

The faculty in the Management and Organizations department are experts in their fields and are dedicated to improving work environments by shaping business theories, industry standards, and public policies.  Our faculty conduct and publish research on leadership, organizational behavior, strategic management, sustainability, innovation, entrepreneurship, collaboration, and international business.

Consistent with our Jesuit values, we encourage academic excellence and constant improvement by asking students to reflect on their own experiences and those of others. We also work hard to create a welcoming and inclusive environment that challenges students to look at issues in new and creative ways and leverages the value of diverse viewpoints. Through our programs, students develop a capacity to become bold leaders, creative innovators, excellent communicators, effective collaborators, engaged citizens, champions of inclusion, and evidenced-based problem solvers ready to take their place in the world.
