How to Manage People

Management involves more than just knowing what should be done in a business or organization; it also involves knowing how to get others to do what should be done. Anyone in charge of others has to be able to get others to get things done. This program teaches the knowledge and skills needed to effectively manage people. It covers basic study skills, interpersonal relationship skills, communication skills, business ethics, how to evaluate and predict human behavior, and tools to help others operate more ethically, productively and effectively.

A faculty-supervised Final Practical Application requires the student to apply the knowledge and skills learned in business and organizational management situations.

This program is recommended for:

people who would like to move into supervisory or management positions but are inexperienced in supervising or managing others,
people who have recently been promoted into management or supervisory positions, and
business owners, professionals, executives, managers and supervisors who want to improve their people management skills.
