The mission of management faculty at the Boler School of Business is to help our students develop the management and leadership skills needed to excel in their chosen professions. A major in management is especially appropriate for those who plan to become leaders or managers in any organization, from Fortune 500 companies to family businesses, or for those who aspire to develop and manage new enterprises.
How do we do this?
John Carroll is dedicated to developing socially responsible leaders. With a foundation in over 450 years of Jesuit Catholic teaching, our faculty focus on providing students with the tools needed to make ethical decisions in business and in the larger community. We believe in educating you as a whole person: mind, body, and spirit, and ensuring that all aspects of your education help you to become a well-rounded, well-educated person.
What does this mean for you?
As a management major, you will learn about strategic thinking, project management, and the leadership skills needed to implement decisions in 21st-century business. Students are taught theories, interpersonal skills, and financial and technological techniques applicable to all organized activity—whether in business, government, education, or healthcare. In addition to your business classes, you’ll receive a solid foundation in the liberal arts, sciences, and communications.
We’ll teach you how to take the skills you’ll learn in the classroom and apply them to both your career and your life. You’ll learn both in and out of the classroom, being challenged to see how your gifts and talents can make a difference in our world.
You’ll learn from professionals that are leaders in their fields, who will advise and mentor you throughout your four years at Carroll. Your professors will expose you to aspects of global business, information technology, and the application of professional ethics/morals, as well as instilling you with technical competence and analytical skills.
Where do alumni go after graduation?
Recent John Carroll management alumni have pursued career opportunities as management consultants, entrepreneurs, management/executive trainees, human-resource specialists, healthcare administrators, production/operations planners and supervisors, bank managers, and salespeople.
With many career options, John Carroll’s management major offers students the opportunity to tailor course work to specific careers. This flexibility distinguishes a management major from other majors. Students may select a variety of elective courses by choosing the broadly defined Leadership and Management track, or they may choose a track in Human Resource Management or Entrepreneurial Studies.
