Management can be defined as "the organization and coordination of the activities of a business in order to achieve defined objectives"
Management is an interdisciplinary field that draws upon business concepts and ideas from marketing, economics, finance, insurance, transporation, accounting, computer technologies, information systems, engineering, and business law. In addition, mathematics, philosophy, sociology, and psychology have broad influence.
