Major in Management

Degree Requirement Summary (DRS)

Degree Requirement Summary with Concentrations

Special emphasis is placed on developing knowledge and skills that are increasingly useful to managers, such as conceptual, analytical, communication, interpersonal, and leadership skills. Students learn to diagnose organizational issues in a way that reflects an understanding of multiple, interacting levels of organizational analysis, including current environmental and global forces. 

With only two required courses, the Management major provides flexibility within the MG electives and management-related electives for students to attain a broad, general education, or focus on a more narrowly defined area of management with a concentration in human resource management, entrepreneurship, global management, leadership, or supply chain management. 

Opportunities for Service Learning and Internships are plentiful in both the profit and non-profit sectors.
