The Department of Management came into existence in 2014. It is one of the five departments under the Faculty of Business and Information Sciences (FBIS) at Moshi Co-operative University. The Department is key to Human Resource and Business Management teaching, research and consultancy across the University. Currently, the Department runs three undergraduate degree program, namely the Bachelor of Arts in Human Resource Management (BA-HRM.) a Diploma in Enterprise Management (DEMA) and a Certificate in Human Resource Management (CHRM) and one postgraduate degree programme a Master in Business Management (MBM) and it is also engaged in teaching various business management courses belonging to other programs. The office premises of the Department of Management are located at Wazalendo Complex, MoCU Main Campus.
Prior to its emergence, Human Resource Management and Business Management, research and consultancies were matters handled by the then Management Unit. The latter Unit was a better half of the then Department of Management and Law (MAL) of the then Moshi University College of Co-operative and Business Studies (MUCCoBS). Following institutional transformation which led to the upgrading of MUCCoBS into a full-fledged University (Moshi Co-operative University) in 2014, the Unit of Management under the MAL Department was as well upgraded into an independent Department.
The history of the Department of Management is, however, well understood with reference to business management teaching from the time of the then Co-operative College to MUCCoBS and of lately MoCU. Under MUCCoBS various business management courses had been introduced in other degree programs. These business management courses were only taught under the auspices of specific departments hosting the programs. Prior to 2010, all affairs about management teaching were under the Department of Business Management and Technology (BMT). It was in 2011 that the BMT Department was split into two departments one of which was the MAL Department. MAL Department hosted the Management Unit.
