Our management program builds on a core business curriculum. Students learn principles of accounting, business, economics, finance and marketing in addition to management. When they graduate, they have a thorough understanding of how to make organizations work efficiently and effectively.
The management major doesn’t focus on just one or two areas. Students learn about the challenges and requirements of many functions within organizations.
This program emphasizes:
- Human resources management
- Management information systems
- Operations management
- Organizational behavior
- Production management
- Strategic management
Courses incorporate hands-on projects for real companies. In the Finance Lab, you solve problems through case studies and simulations. In fact, all upper-level courses are taught in the lab using the latest software tools. Summer research grants pay you to work with a faculty member on your own projects. W’International travel seminars introduce you to new cultures and experiences that can build your understanding of international business.
