Management at Baylor
Our mission: We fulfill God's mandate to promote human flourishing through. . .
- Researching and teaching the effective management of systems and people
- Practicing servant leadership and equipping principled leaders
- Fostering collaboration and community
Our faculty team collaborate towards the central purpose of promoting human flourishing. This mandate from God is provided in Genesis when God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26.
As God's image bearers, we have a responsibility to nurture the world around us, in particular supporting fellow men and women to pursue a life well-lived. Our Management faculty promote human flourishing through multiple facets including research of systems and people with impact, teaching principled leadership and virtues through role modeling, and enriching our local community. This mission strives for our ultimate department vision presented below.
Our vision: Become thought-leaders who set the standard for research productivity, inspire students to become the next generation of principled leaders, and facilitate student placement in roles that are consistent with their calling.
