Management is a large department including faculty members in such diverse areas as human resource management, international business, and health administration. Though doctoral students focus on entrepreneurship, they can draw on faculty expertise in the other areas if it fits their entrepreneurship research. Students interested in meta-analysis, for example, might work with Michael Harari, and students interested in leadership might work with Ethlyn Williams. For a complete list of the Management faculty, check the department's faculty page.
