Management

The Management Department prepares students to be leaders in innovative, entrepreneurial and technology settings: in large established firms, small and medium sized growth businesses, and entrepreneurial startups.  We prepare students to lead cutting edge, flexible and nimble organizations, especially preparing students to lead organizations in the information age and the idea economy. 

Students earning an emphasis in management will learn the skills and tools needed to lead successful organizations from project teams to departments and small businesses to global enterprises. Management coursework at Mizzou is diverse because managing today and in the future requires a diverse set of knowledge, skills and abilities: entrepreneurial strategy, human resource management, human behavior in organizations, information systems/analytics, operations management, business law, diversity and inclusion, and leadership and ethics.

We encourage students to concentrate their area support courses within one of the following emphasis areas: supply chain management and operations, information systems, human resource management, or entrepreneurship depending upon their career aspirations.
