Management and Leadership
About Management and Leadership
Our Management & Leadership program is nationally accredited by the Canadian Institute of Management. The program offers dynamic learning experiences which often challenge business as usual. Course instruction draws from a wide range of engaging methods, including service learning projects in community organizations, film and case analysis, debates, simulations, guest lectures, virtual teams, and field trips. Along the way, through critique and reflection, students will learn more about themselves and the kind of business leader they are and wish to become.
Why Study Management and Leadership at StFX?
A concentration in Management & Leadership prepares students to respond to today's leadership needs through management roles in a variety of work organizations. The functions of management include planning, organizing, leading, and evaluating; the knowledge needed to do these functions includes business ethics and social responsibility, leadership, strategic management, human resources management, human behaviour in organization, and an understanding of organizational life. By taking courses in all these areas, our graduates learn about the complexities of managing within an increasingly global and diverse social and stakeholder context, and how to create a work environment where people can thrive, do good work, and accomplish goals. Our program has options for students to broaden their base of knowledge by studying contemporary subjects including Indigenous business, environmental sustainability, gender in management, labour relations, and more.
