Coordinator: Sang W. Kim

Management Minor

Coordinator: Anita Jose

Economics Major, B.A.

The faculty of economics is a community of teacher-scholars engaged in theoretical, empirical and historical approaches to the study of the global economy and the varieties of capitalism extant in the world today. The faculty aims to create a collaborative teaching, learning and research environment emphasizing global awareness, environmental sensitivity and the synergies between theory and practice. Students majoring in economics are expected to acquire competencies in theory and empirical analyses, to adopt either an international or political concentration in their course work or to design their own major in consultation with two faculty members in economics. Individually designed majors are required to complete all core economics course requirements. Majors are required to participate in our lecture series and are strongly encouraged to spend either a semester, year or summer studying abroad. Majors are also encouraged to work with a faculty member in economics on at least one research project. A 3-credit internship in a major international city such as Washington, D.C., is recommended.

Management Major, B.A.

The management program is designed to prepare students for leadership careers in complex organizations in the public, private and nonprofit sectors of an increasingly global economy and diversified workplace. Our differentiating niche is a strong emphasis on business functions, social accountability, global awareness, quantitative and qualitative analytical skills, and synergy between theory and practice. Because tomorrow’s managers will face intense competitive pressures and strong demands for competency, flexibility and accountability, the management program provides a curriculum that builds core competencies and embeds that core curriculum in a liberal arts program. The management faculty members, who are active in teaching, scholarship and mentoring, aim to create a collaborative teaching and learning environment. Majors are required to participate in our lecture series and to spend either a semester, year or summer studying abroad or in an internship in a major international city such as Washington, D.C. (International students are exempt from the study abroad and internship requirement.) Majors are also encouraged to work with a faculty member in management on at least one research project.

Business Administration, M.B.A.

Program Director: Anita Jose, Ph.D. ajose@hood.edu; 301-696-3691

The goal of the M.B.A. curriculum is to provide students with a broad professional education
that prepares them for responsible leadership and management positions in business and
public service. Students integrate business theory and practical application in taking a creative,
innovative approach to solving complex problems in today’s global business environment. The
importance of making both socially and ethically responsible decisions in today’s business
world is stressed.
