Department of Management & Human Resource Management - Program

Department Chair: Dr. Athmar Al-Salem

Management today is a challenging and exciting field. Management systems play an essential role in powering the economy, and management decisions and practices can have substantial impact on individual lives. The Management major allows students to learn strategies, techniques, and ethics for effective organization. The required courses - Entrepreneurship, Change Management, Organizational Behavior, and Business Operations - provide students with an essential foundation for effective management skills and employability. The study of Entrepreneurship opens opportunities for creativity and initiation of new business. Flexibility in dynamic environments and exploitation of business opportunities are addressed in the study of Change Management. The human element in business is fundamental to success, yet is often seen as difficult to manage. In response to this dilemma, the course in Organizational Behavior explores theories and perspectives on human behavior in organizations that lend an understanding of this complex aspect of business. The Business Operations course focuses on achieving competitive advantage by improving efficiency and customer experiences. Management skills are in high demand worldwide. A degree in Management opens employment possibilities in a broad range of industries as well as in the non-profit sector of the economy.


The focus is on preparing students for business in Kuwait, Arabian Gulf, Arab World, and internationally. Working together with the College of Business and Economics, the Management department provides rigorous programs that foster excellence in teaching, scholarship, and disseminate socially responsible practices to advance societies.


The Management major aspires to be recognized locally, regionally, and internationally for its institutional distinctiveness, academic excellence, and the accomplishments of its graduates.
