The Management program at Eckerd College offers students the unique opportunity to learn the art, the science and the craft of the discipline while gaining a liberal arts education. Because it deals with the integration of people in a common venture, it is deeply embedded in culture. Every organization is comprised of people with different skills and knowledge. It is the manager’s job to enable both the organization and each of its members to grow and develop as needs and opportunities change. Finally, neither the quantity of output nor the bottom line is by itself an adequate measure of the performance of the manager and the organization.

The Management discipline consists of two majors: Management and Business Administration. Each is geared to the needs of both the student and society. The Management Major provides the student with skills which can be utilized in any organization, be it for-profit, government or in the social sector. The business administration degree is geared to the student who wants to pursue a career within a for-profit corporate organization and/or a Masters in Business Administration.

Students learn to understand both the people aspects of dealing in business world, such as organizational theories and leadership, while also earning a firm grasp on quantitative concepts and decision sciences. Additionally, experiential learning and internships with various local and national organizations allows the Eckerd student an opportunity to practice the craft of management. Both programs incorporate technology throughout all courses, as demonstrated in the Management Information Systems course and other electives.
