10.3 Bachelor of Management
10.3.0 Educational Objectives: Faculty of Management
The Faculty of Management at Concordia University of Edmonton is committed to developing “Ethical Leaders for a Global Economy”. The goal is to encourage students to think strategically, using both their hearts and their minds: understanding that the success of any business can be measured by its ability to build and nurture quality relationships internally and externally.
This first objective is the foundation for the Faculty’s more specific objectives. Concordia University of Edmonton has designed its Management program:
- To graduate professionals who show leadership in their field.
- To integrate and involve the community in our programs as mentors, teachers, advisors, and employers.
- To develop and deliver targeted programs that are widely recognized for the quality of the learning experience.
- To freely share knowledge, skills, research, and values.
- To serve all internal and external stakeholders in timely, effective, and efficient ways.
- To stay abreast of recent developments and research, and to maintain professional contacts in the communities in which our graduates seek career opportunities.
10.3.1 Four-Year Bachelor of Management Degree Program
Concordia University of Edmonton’s Bachelor of Management program has been designed to cultivate graduates with a combination of superior professional/technical competency and effective management/leadership skills that will allow them to excel in any industry.
The program’s core curriculum integrates professional and technical courses in accounting, financing, information technology, human resources, operations, and marketing, with management/leadership, communication, and organizational studies courses that foster strategic and critical thinking, creativity, well-roundedness, interpersonal effectiveness as well as social and ethical accountability.
Practical and relevant learning is enhanced through the program’s engagement of industry experts in the classroom, an employer advisory committee consisting of high profile business and community leaders, a 450-hour practicum, student consulting projects, and other experiential learning activities.
The program is innovative and highly flexible, giving students the opportunity to complete their Bachelor of Management degree with an emphasis in Accounting, Conflict Management, Data Management, Finance, Human Resources, Leadership, or Marketing, or with a minor in various fields from the Faculties of Arts and Science. Students in other programs may also enhance their degree with a minor in Business.
