Managers work with people to make and implement the decisions that move organizations forward. The Management major prepares students to be productive and insightful managers. Management students ask such questions as: How can we make organizational changes while maintaining production? What resources do we need to develop and how should we use them to lead our organization to a competitive advantage? Management is all about leadership, teamwork, communication, and problem-solving.
Required Management courses address micro issues of human resources and organizational behavior and macro issues of strategy and organizational design. In addition to these management basics, Management majors can choose among major course electives in International Business, Negotiation and Conflict Resolution, and Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management.
With the Management major electives, students have the opportunity to tailor their management focus to a more strategic level, a more human resources orientation, or an international business emphasis.
Graduates of this program enter organizations wish job titles that include project manager, territory sales manager, credit analyst, account coordinator, customer account manager, business/research analyst, and assistant to the CFO/CIO/COO. Management majors join all types of organizations, large and small, domestic and international, non-profit and government, service and manufacturing companies.
