I sincerely feel greatly honoured to welcome you all to the Department of Management of the Moshi Co-operative University (MoCU). The Department is under the Faculty of Business and Information Sciences (FBIS) and one amongst the five departments of the faculty. With only a few years of existence, the Department has become a source of qualified, skilled and resourceful human resource and business management graduates. The department is currently running Master of Business Management (MBM), Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM), Bachelor of Human Resource Management (BHRM), Diploma in Human Resource Management (DHRM), Diploma in Business and Enterprise Management (DBEM) and Certificate in Human Resource Management (CHRM) programs.
The infrastructures available at MoCU offer a conducive environment for students to carry on their studies. The library services available offer a wide range of human resource and business management materials. Lectures halls, theatres and seminar rooms are conducive for students to comfortably learn. Moreover, ICT facilities are also available and students can communicate and access various materials online.
The Department facilitates practical studies through visits to nearby institutions including public, private, NGOs, Co-operatives and banking firms. This is done in conjunction with field/practical training whereby, students will be required to undergo eight (8) weeks. The Department is striving to excel in teaching, research and consultancy. To achieve the foregoing, we, at the Department, are focusing at staff highest academic qualifications, seeking and executing research and consultancy works as well as co-operating with other institutions, both academic and non-academic, nationally and internationally.
The department is guided by the philosophy that, helping students to develop a deep love and respect for professionalism, themselves, others, and their environment occurs through an open sharing of ideas and a judicious approach to discipline. When the voice of each student is heard, and environment evolves where students feel free to express themselves. Class meetings are one way to encourage such dialogue. We believe students have greater respect for their instructors, peers, and the lessons presented when they feel safe and sure of what is expected of them. In setting fair and consistent rules initially and stating the importance of every activity, students will show respect for their presence and time. In turn they learn to portray knowledge, respect themselves, others, and their environment.
We welcome you all to our department
The Department of Management came into existence in 2014. The Department is key to Human Resource and Business Management teaching, research and consultancy across the University. Currently, run Master of Business Management (MBM), Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM), Bachelor of Human Resource Management (BHRM), Diploma in Human Resource Management (DHRM), Diploma in Business and Enterprise Management (DBEM) and Certificate in Human Resource Management (CHRM).
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.
