Management Department Website

Management is the force responsible for directing organizations toward goals or objectives. Therefore, the management curriculum focuses on the nature and capabilities of human and other resources, as well as how the manager plans, organizes, staffs, coordinates, and evaluates those resources in an organization and its environment. The study of management prepares men and women for positions of leadership in profit and nonprofit organizations of all sizes. Management majors gain insight and skill needed for careers as professional managers or as self-employed entrepreneurs. These skills include technical knowledge, communicative capacity, human understanding, and conceptual and problem-solving ability. Two majors are offered in the management department. Requirements of the management major are listed below. Find out more about the general business major.

Students may choose from among three concentrations:

  • Human Resource Management
  • Small Business and Entrepreneurship
  • Organizational Leadership.
