Management & Marketing

From organizational and consumer behavior and strategic management, policies and strategies, to international business, and legal and ethical studies, Oakland University students benefit from the vast range of expertise the management and marketing faculty offer.

The management and marketing department covers three clusters: marketing; organization behavior/human resource management; and management. Within the management cluster, there are three areas: strategic management/policies and strategies; international business; and legal and ethical studies.

Oakland University’s Human Resource Management program is certified by the National Society of Human Resource Management.
