A good manager can improve the culture and productivity within an organization. However, individuals are often promoted to management without ever having seen a budget or financial report, handled an employee grievance, or conducted an interview. Overwhelmed with new responsibilities and little training, even the best leader can struggle to learn. Designed for managers as well as individuals with aspirations for career advancement in management, this degree and certificate program is comprised of performance-based learning experiences intended to develop the essential knowledge and skill competencies required for managers.
Employment of administrative services managers is expected to grow about as fast as the average (increase 9-17 percent) for all occupations through 2014. Employment of management analysts is expected to grow faster than the average (increase 18 to 26 percent) for all occupations through 2014, as industry and government increasingly rely on outside expertise to improve the performance of their organizations.
