The Faculty of Management at AGH UST is one of the oldest business faculties at technical universities in Poland. The beginnings of business education at AGH UST date back to the Second World War, when courses in management and organization were held at various AGH UST faculties. The Faculty of Management was established in 1974. In 1979, the Faculty was relocated to the building in Gramatyka Street in Krakow, where it has remained until today. Since that time, the Faculty has been developing its activities in education, research, and consultancy. Collaboration with foreign educational institutions focuses on students' and lecturers' exchange programmes, as well as joint research projects. In the past such joint projects contributed substantially to the restructuring of the Faculty, and the modernization of the syllabus and courses offered to students.
Faculty may refer to:
Management (or managing) is the administration of an organization, whether it is a business, a not-for-profit organization, or government body. Management includes the activities of setting the strategy of an organization and coordinating the efforts of its employees (or of volunteers) to accomplish its objectives through the application of available resources, such as financial, natural, technological, and human resources. The term "management" may also refer to those people who manage an organization.
Mission is at the heart of what you do as a team. Goals are merely steps to its achievement. Mission has an eternal quality. Goals are time bound and once achieved, are replaced by others.
Patrick Dixon (2005) Building a Better Business - the key to management, marketing and motivation. p. 66
Management as an activity has always existed to make people’s desires through organized effort. Management facilitates the efforts of people in organized groups and arises when people seek to cooperate to achieve goals.
Daniel A. Wren and Arthur G. Bedeian. The evolution of management thought, 1972, p. 11-12
Poorly managed corporations, disorganized businesses, and badly led service agencies experience crisis daily and most will eventually fail. In contrast, the danger is to well organized, smooth running institutions that may not recognize a building crisis. Too often, sound organizations rely on their normal modus operandi to pull them through a crisis. It might. But at what cost? And what if it does not pull them through?
Wheeler L. Baker, Crisis Management: A Model for Managers (1993), p. 6
