Strategic Planning

Be ethically ambitious.

If you love a project, are detail-oriented, and revel in a job well done, the Strategic Planning minor is probably for you. Students who choose the strategic planning minor will learn to define objectives, develop strategies, allocate resources, and implement plans, so those with career goals in human resources, public relations, event planning, business management, and non-profit direction can especially benefit from this minor.
