A Future in Management
Isenberg’s management department simulates the real-world challenges you’ll face on the job so you’ll be ready to tackle any complex issue thrown your way. Our faculty challenge students to answer questions about how theory applies to real world managerial challenges through coursework and experiential learning.
Management courses have a special emphasis on people and social dynamics in the workplace.
In this class, management students will be introduced to a number of entrepreneurial companies via case studies and guest speakers. Additionally, these students will read about and discuss topics such as the business plan, raising money for a new venture, assessing the riskiness of new businesses and the unique management challenges of start-ups.
This course is designed to help students examine current threats to the sustainability of the global economy, the environment and social impacts of current business practice. You will also learn how both governmental regulations and for profit business initiatives are needed to address these issues.
The Isenberg Management Association is a student run organization that fosters a better understanding of management ideas, strategies, and practices. The IMA organizes faculty seminars, alumni presentations, field trips to businesses, and networking for relevant employment opportunities. IMA creates cohesion and provides resources for Isenberg students interested in management.
