Management "Fit no stereotypes. Don't chase the latest management fads. The situation dictates which approach best accomplishes the team's mission."
-Colin Powell, U.S. statesman and a retired four-star general (b. 1937)
Successful managers are successful professionals. The Management program options at CCU provide you with a core understanding of business principles, as well as a well-rounded study of such business aspects as management concepts, managerial accounting, leadership communication, and business law. Even if you don't intend to make business the core of your career plans, the Management minor or emphasis will train you on how to integrate these aspects and manage decisively.

Affiliate Professor of Business Communication & Economics
School of Business and Leadership
As a Christian in the Reformed tradition, I acknowledge Christ's sovereignty over every square inch of his creation, including the classroom. Scholarship is an essential part of my Christian perspective. Scholarship advances knowledge, and increased knowledge encourages richer discussions and collaborative efforts with my fellow followers of Christ. Moreover, the pursuit of truth should relentlessly address how we, as followers of Christ, can make a redemptive difference in society. More >
