Welcome

Stephen Goodman

Welcome to the Management Department. We offer degrees at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Our objective is to prepare students to succeed in the fast-paced business world.

All undergraduate students must enroll in the Cornerstone Course and participate in a service-learning project. The course is based on four competencies; teamwork, communication, creative thinking, and adapting to change. Additionally, the curriculum has been updated to keep current with today's business world. Students learn about interviewing skills, total quality management, computer applications, diversity issues, and ethics.

We offer three tracks in the management major; general management, human resources, and entrepreneurship. The general management track allows students to take a broad variety of course work and prepares them for general management responsibilities. The human resource track prepares graduates to work as generalists or as functional area specialists within an organization's human resource management department. The entrepreneurship track provides course work for students interested in starting their own business, joining a small business, or working in a fast growing innovative-minded business. Students enrolled in the entrepreneurship track have access to the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and may enter competitions such as The Joust or King of the Court.

Our faculty members conduct research on a variety of topics such as business ethics, entrepreneurship, human resource management, leadership, and organizational behavior. Many of our faculty members serve on the editorial boards of top academic journals. I encourage you to look through our directory to learn more about our faculty and their research projects.

Thank you for your interest in the Management Department. If you have any specific questions, you can contact me at sgoodman@bus.ucf.edu.

Sincerely,

Stephen Goodman
