What will I learn?

The management major is designed for students interested in developing an understanding of the nature and capabilities of human and physical resources. The study and understanding of management principles and practices will aid those who intend to enter the field professionally as administrators, executives, operations managers, human resource managers, management consultants, proprietor managers, purchasing managers or other management positions. Students graduating with a management major are employed by a variety of organizations in industries, such as manufacturing, public utilities, oil and transportation, merchandising and banking, as well as government and nonprofit entities. A sound background in accepted management principles can accelerate progress to positions of greater responsibility.

Management Major
