Today, there is a great need of a generalist manager who has the knowledge, ability and attitude to analyze a business organization – one with informed and functional skills in human resource development, finance, accounting, production, marketing, law and economics. In sum, the generalist manager has basic conceptual, technical and social competences. Socially here refers to people skills that help build motivating and productive relationships with the work force as well as with superiors. The underpinning values espoused by both the generalist (MM) and specialist programs (MM with a major area) are the University’s core values of excellence, integrity, loyalty, self-discipline, life-long learning and community service.. The specialist programs are as follows:
