On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Management Department, I welcome you to the Management Department website where you will discover what we offer our students.
Generally, the study of management and international business focuses on functions required to make a group of people work effectively as a unit. These functions include planning, organizing, staffing, directing and controlling. Consequently, the Management and International Business programs at West Chester University consists of a diverse undergraduate curriculum and various hands-on opportunities for students to learn these valuable concepts and skills.
To this end, we seek to provide students with the skills required to manage business and public organizations effectively. Additionally, each curriculum is designed to provide students with the solid foundation for advanced degrees in business administration, management, or international business as well as professional careers in any area of industry or entrepreneurship.
We are proud to be one of the few colleges in the North East corridor that offers a high quality, yet affordable undergraduate programs in management and international business. As members of a university that places a premium on excellence in undergraduate teaching, the Management Department faculty continually strives to ensure that students are armed with the requisite concepts and skills that would enable them to succeed academically and professionally.
