There are approximately 860 students enrolled full- or part-time majoring in our undergraduate programs.

Full-time faculty and experienced practitioners – many of them authors of research published in top academic journals and practitioner publications – engage with students in each of these academic programs. The Department of Management ranked 111 (with 7 publications in the eight top management journals) out of 224 rankings assigned to a list of 318 management departments in U.S. and Canadian universities.
