School of Management – Graduate Programs
- Admission and Graduation Requirements
- Academic Standing Policy
The mission of the School of Management is to prepare leaders who will transform society through business, government or non-profit organizations.
In support of this mission, the School of Management (SOM) strives to create student-centered learning experiences with a focus on hands-on learning and an emphasis on “real-world” experience to support theoretical knowledge. In today’s competitive business world, people who achieve results and exceed goals by utilizing problem solving, communication, and decision-making skills are in great demand. The School of Management curriculum prepares students to meet these challenges. Concordia’s programs are unique in that graduates will not only understand the management aspects but will also possess a firm grasp on the ethical, creative and adaptive components necessary to practice within these professions. As a result, Concordia’s business majors are sought by local, regional, national, and international firms, along with government and non-profit organizations.
Through the School of Management’s commitment to excellence in teaching and mentoring, it will develop students who:
Lead others to do the same
These capabilities, integrated into a framework of Christian values, prepare students to become agents of positive change, thereby transforming society and the workplace.
To remain in “good standing”, graduate candidates in the School of Management are expected to maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better throughout their progress towards their degree. Students must repeat any course lower than a C. Failure to remain in good standing will result in probationary status. A student may remain on continuing probation for a maximum of three consecutive terms as long as each term GPA is above 3.0. Failure to return to good academic standing within this time frame can result in dismissal from the program and from Concordia University.
