What does Mgmt mean?


In the world of business and IT, mgmt is a shorthand way of saying “management”. It’s often used when talking about jobs like server or network management. Imagine getting a note from the top dogs at your company saying no more bonuses. You might grumble to your colleague, “Man, mgmt sure knows how to dampen our morale, huh.”

You’ll typically see mgmt used in text-based communications like emails, online chats, and text messages. It’s a quick and easy way to refer to the management team, often when you’re venting or complaining about something they’ve done (or not done).

But the use of mgmt isn’t limited to people. It can also refer to the act of managing something. Suppose your coworker thinks he’s the best person for a job, but you remember how he messed up his last assignment. You might say, “I can’t believe he thinks he’s the top pick, especially after his mgmt of his previous task.”

There’s one more interpretation of MGMT worth mentioning. It’s the name of an indie rock band from Middletown, Connecticut. The band members, Jack VanWyngarden and Paul Goldwasser, released their debut album, Oracular Spectacular, in 2006.
