The mission of the Department of Management is to provide nationally competitive undergraduate and graduate education in the study of management. Management is work done through others. The management program prepares its majors for entry-level jobs, and for eventual positions in middle-level and upper-level management, as well as for high-quality graduate programs. In addition, the program provides general management education to all students in the College of Business and to students in a wide variety of programs across the university.
Our faculty consists of just under 30 academics who hold terminal or advanced degrees in the field of Management. Faculty interests include organizational behavior, ethics, leadership, human resource management, teams work, group dynamics, and motivation.
We have one of the largest majors in the College of Business at James Madison University. Many are business majors while others have also selected to specialize in Human Resource Management or Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (TIE).
We are located in Showker Hall, which is close to the Port Republic Road entrance to the University. Our offices are located on the 5th Floor. Faculty can be primarily found on the 5th and 6th floors.
