THE DEPARTMENT OF MANAGEMENT
College of Business Administration
 
The Department of Management in the College of Business Administration at Georgia State University is one of the largest in the United States. The department strives to develop leaders of business and society, to contribute to the body of knowledge of the management of human endeavors and to support and preserve, through various forms of service, the larger communities to which the department is ultimately responsible.

The Department seeks a balance among three top priorities: the development and delivery of state-of-the-art educational programs for managers in today's dynamic and competitive global business environment; scholarly contributions to knowledge generation resulting in publications in the leading theoretical and research journals in the field; and service to its many constituencies in the business and professional communities.

Diverse faculty members with outstanding academic qualifications and business experience serve as role models and counselors for doctoral students and master's level managment practioners. The strong emphasis on graduate programs contributes to the quality of undergraduate and nondegree programs.
