Management Minor

Management is one of the broadest fields within the traditional business curriculum. This discipline addresses the principles and theories of directing people and allocating resources to accomplish a given task. Students of management learn about different motivational theories, leadership styles, planning models, and systems of control and feedback. The minor forms a foundation for those students who may wish to pursue a graduate degree in business, as well as introducing non-business majors to those concepts of management that will benefit them in their chosen careers; for example, a chemistry student interested in running a research lab will benefit from understanding basic concepts of management.
