Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: LMU College of Business Administration

Objectives


The Management and Leadership major provides students with the appropriate theoretical foundation, applied skill development, project-based learning and professional connections to successfully manage their future careers effectively lead others. Students are expected to gain knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary to support their entry and ongoing career success as ethical and socially responsible leaders, managers, and administrators in our diverse global economy. In addition to the university and college core requirements, Management and Leadership students are required to complete three specialized management courses and two upper-division electives. Students will develop their own career action plan and have the flexibility to choose the two electives according to their career interests.

Learning Outcomes


Upon completion of requirements for this major, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of leadership principles, theories, skills, and traits within themselves and in organizations
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the methods and management styles organizations use to sensitize and engage their employees in valuing diversity in the workplace
  • Identify and understand the major theoretical frameworks for team development and processes
  • Demonstrate decision making abilities in difficult situations through practice to develop confidence in effective and efficient leadership
  • Demonstrate global business knowledge, cross-cultural competencies, and appreciation for local and global business environments
  • Understand how to build nimble organizational cultures to promote innovation, collaboration, and creativity

Major Requirements


Upper Division Business Core Requirements:


Management and Leadership Major Requirements:


Note:


All upper division Management and Leadership courses must be taken in residence at LMU. However, up to two courses
approved in advance for LMU supported study abroad programs may count toward the major. A cumulative GPA of C (2.0) must be achieved in the major requirements (all business, economics, and mathematics courses).

For purposes of meeting the requirements for the B.B.A., Management and Leadership major, degree and determination of academic probation, an overall cumulative grade point average of at least a C (2.0) must be obtained in all courses required in the major.

Completion of Management and Leadership Major


For the Management and Leadership major, students will complete all LMU and CBA core requirements, plus the required MGMT 2600 Managing Yourself, MGMT 3600 Managing Others, two upper-division MGMT electives, and the capstone course MGMT 4600 Global-Local Mindset (20 or more units for the upper division major courses). The two electives may be selected from any upper- division MGMT courses or from other non-MGMT courses approved by the Department of Management in advance. As part of their career development coursework in MGMT 2600 Managing Yourself, students will develop a tentative curriculum plan covering options for the two upper-division MGMT electives and other possible electives to fulfill their graduation requirements and career interests. In subsequent semesters, if intending to fulfill one or both of the required upper-division MGMT electives outside of MGMT, a student must prepare a proposal and receive special approval from the Management Department chair and an ad hoc MGMT faculty committee before enrolling in a substitute elective. This proposal must be submitted to the Management Department chair at least one month before the intended enrollment, indicating the student’s career preparation rationale for taking the non-MGMT upper-division elective, and evidence that the course will be offered and open for the student to take (e.g., prerequisites or special permission required by another LMU department to allow the student to enroll in the non-MGMT course). Following completion of the non-MGMT upper-division elective, the student must then file a degree audit adjustment form, signed by a MGMT advisor and the Management Department chair, that will permit the course to count as fulfilling an upper-division MGMT elective.
