Management/Supervision, A.S.

Management/supervision focuses on the role of the first-line supervisor. Critical thinking skills are emphasized as business and management theories are explored to enhance decision making, leadership, team building, and motivating employees in a supervisory capacity. Primary management functions of planning, organizing, directing, and organizational change are identified and analyzed. Both the Associate degree and the Certificate share the same lists of required specific coursework with the difference being the required general education pattern for the degree.
