The ability to effectively manage others – this is a skill that is highly valued by employers. Managers are responsible for the effective and efficient allocation of organizational resources. This requires that you be exposed to all levels and types of management positions as well as both aspects of the formal and informal organization.

Through creative experiential learning, as well as field trips, conferences, interviews and guests, you will participate in self-reflection and evaluation to prepare for positions as professional managers, regardless of a particular industry.

The curriculum of the management major is designed to provide a basic framework within which the management of human, physical, and capital resources occurs. In addition to studying a broad base of business topics, you will be exposed to a specialized curriculum emphasizing the study of information gathering, human relations, communication, production, and funding the organization. The management major prepares you for graduate school, self-employment, or for entry-level positions in personnel, production, and other management-related areas.
