The Department of Management and Marketing has these objectives for the business student:
- To prepare students to be academically sound for graduate studies and professional bodies such as MBA, CIS, IPM, and IMM.
- To develop students’ managerial skills which enable them to meet the organisational challenges and their future careers.
- To create a sense of managerial responsibility and accountability in the minds of students.
- To help students harmonise business ethics and Christian values.
In modern society individuals such as restaurants’ managers, production managers, marketing managers, shop managers, executive managers, deans, superintendents, ship captains, general managers or strategic managers to name a few, do important work. These individuals may work in different organisations with different goals, but they all have one characteristic in common: they practice management.
Our society and economy as a whole depend on the goals and services provided by organisations which are managed by individuals with managerial skills. The training of sufficient managers is crucial in terms of a country’s growth and wealth, especially in our society where there is a critical shortage of people with managerial skills.
The degree is suitable for students who want to follow careers in any sector of the economy as functional managers, general managers or executive managers.
Professionals such as engineers, accountants, medical practitioners and lawyers need managerial skills to make progress in their respective companies or practices. The degree enables graduates to work as management consultants or to manage their own companies as entrepreneurs.
