In the Department of Management Systems, students are our primary focus, and we view ourselves as members of a team engaging in a collaborative teaching and learning process. In support of this, we strive for continuous improvement of course content, delivery, and integration. We value diversity in ourselves, our students, and our various constituencies, and we affirm our commitment to be responsive to the opportunities and challenges inherent in that diversity. Our primary objective is to help students learn, and our primary reference group is the global business community. Therefore, we strive to prepare our graduates to make significant contributions to that community and the larger community throughout their careers. To accomplish this, we commit ourselves as a faculty to being current, relevant, creative, and innovative in working with our students and the business community. We value honesty, integrity, and openness to new ideas in our interactions and our intellectual pursuits, and we recognize the importance of lifelong development through research efforts and professional activities commensurate with this mission statement.
The College of Business provides a distinctive learning environment that actively engages students, faculty, and the business community in developing knowledge and skills relevant for success in a complex, global economy.
This environment stimulates student learning and faculty research so that our graduates are able to: a) apply a holistic, integrated approach to business problems; b) apply the communication, leadership, team and technological skills needed to succeed in their business careers; c) understand how to work with people from other cultures and to operate effectively in other countries; and d) understand the social responsibilities of individuals and organizations and evaluate the ethical dimensions of decisions in a business context.
