Department head's message

When equipped with the intellectual tools and communication skills necessary to diagnose and resolve managerial challenges AUS management graduates will be ready to excel in a wide variety of business settings.
Patrick L. McClelland

Welcome to the Department of Management at the School of Business Administration!

The Management major is designed to prepare students for positions of leadership and responsibility in the modern, global organization. Management is approached as a professional career that embodies both theoretical and technical knowledge as well as a concern for the ethical, human and cultural aspects of commercial, governmental, and non-profit organizations. The major emphasizes the development of a thorough and holistic grounding in a common body of knowledge in topics ranging from business law, human resources management, organizational behavior, and leadership to family business, innovation, business ethics, and strategic management (among others) as the basis for making sound managerial decisions.

The department offers students a unique opportunity to learn from a world-class faculty in the context of a collective teaching philosophy that is based on fostering a collaborative learning environment, and the development of critical thinking and managerial decision-making skills. When equipped with the intellectual tools and communication skills necessary to diagnose and resolve managerial challenges AUS management graduates will be ready to excel in a wide variety of business settings.

Our teaching is research-driven by faculty members who publish their work in many of the top-tiered academic journals in the field including the Academy of Management Perspectives, Business Ethics: A European Review, Business Research Quarterly, Health Expectations, Human Relations, the Journal of Family Business Strategy, the Journal of Business Ethics, the Journal of Management, the Journal of Small Business Management, the Journal of World Business, Personnel Review, Public Administration Quarterly, and Public Policy and Administration to name a few. Faculty in the Department of Management regularly present their work at prestigious international conferences and serve on editorial boards and as associate editors as well as offer their professional advice to practitioners in the United Arab Emirates and beyond.

I invite you to explore our faculty research pages to learn more about faculty members in the department and to visit with me in order to discuss how the management major can help you to achieve your career objectives!

"Management is a major that does not dictate what’s right and wrong. Instead, it provides an individual with ways to flourish and test one's creativity while believing in one's capabilities." – Grishma Goud, a senior majoring in management.
