The transition of the world economy towards enacting market mechanism and globalization implies the escalating creation of further opportunities for youthful, ambitious and knowledgeable university graduates. Therefore, the importance of management as an academic discipline and professional career should be emphasized. As a professional discipline, Management Technology is an integrative science that covers many disciplines like international marketing, finance and insurance, international business and general management in their wide sense.
GUC offers two Management Programs: General Management and Technology-based Management.
General management program offers a flexible and a broadly generalist and managerial degree instead of a narrow and functional one. Thus, our students will move effortlessly from one functional area to another and work smoothly with colleagues in all areas. It will enable students to develop a broad-based range of business skills and concepts needed to effectively manage the functional areas of a company. The program fosters an understanding for the interdependencies of decisions made in the company and how value can be created by these decisions.
Technology-based management program offers a balanced combination of the business and technology skills required by managers in modern industry. It provides students not only with the general broad-based management knowledge but also with the technical knowledge needed to understand and manage organizations that compete in the high-technology industries, like developing knowledge and understanding of the foundation, techniques, limitations, recent developments and likely future trends in the following fields: Communication technology, information technology, multimedia technology, computer aided product design, modern manufacturing techniques, etc.
