The mission of the Department of Management is to serve a broad group of stakeholders, which principally includes our students, the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology (ECOBIT), Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), the local and state communities, the departmental faculty, and the businesses and organizations that employ our graduates. In order to serve these constituents, we are actively involved in the three highly interrelated endeavors of teaching and fulfillment of professional responsibilities, scholarly activities, and service to the university community and beyond. As a measure of success, we meet and exceed the standards set forth by the relevant accrediting bodies in addition to supporting the ECOBIT and IUP missions. We ambitiously and enthusiastically pursue these endeavors through the effective and efficient utilization of our resources, particularly people and technology.

We provide high-quality, relevant education to our students while emphasizing the learning of the body of knowledge of the management disciplines as well as critical and integrative thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills, effective oral and written communication, interpersonal skills, positive attitude, technology, and overall commitment to lifetime learning.
The department believes in continually updating its curriculum with respect to content and pedagogy while being committed to continuously improving quality of education and attracting a growing national and international student body. In addition to excelling in classroom course delivery, the faculty is committed to providing academic and career advising to students, providing students with opportunities for experiential education, and encouraging participation in professional student organizations and other professional and extracurricular activities.

We provide support and governance for the department, college, and university and also provide services to the business community and the community at large through our comprehensive outreach activities.
