In order to function effectively in a variety of organizational situations, administrators and managers must understand the complexities of organizational communication and the interrelationships that exist among the various functional groups that each impact organizational welfare. This point of view is essential for managers who wish to both participate effectively with others in the administrative and managerial group and also administer and oversee activities effectively in critical areas of responsibility. The department’s program in business management provides the requisite skill sets for success in this demanding and increasingly international and diverse work environment.
