Whether you plan to supervise people or processes, a management degree gives you the foundation you need. 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.

This approach means they’re ready to step into leadership roles right away. That’s why they’re management majors.

Learning to Lead

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

Students also choose between a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science. The B.A. degree requires intermediate second-language courses, while the B.S. degree has more math or lab science credits.

Getting Down to Business

In the management program, you don’t just learn concepts. You apply them.

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.
