Managers lead people to get things done in organizations. They plan, staff, budget, monitor, and generally direct the part of the organization they lead. This requires knowledge of people as individuals and teams. Successful managers are also astute observers and understand what is culturally and politically acceptable within the organization. They know how to communicate with both diplomacy and candor. Managers must understand all the business functions in a holistic and applied manner, which is why students take a broad array of courses.
