Department of Management

The management major is designed for students interested in the fields of business, manufacturing, and other types of organizational management. The curriculum has been developed to include a combination of business, technical, and behavioral courses in order to prepare the student for employment in a business or other for–profit or non–profit organizations.

Flexibility is allowed so that students have some discretion in orienting their programs toward career and degree objectives. While the basic courses required of a management major are the same for all students, a variety of options are available to students with special interests.

For example, students interested in personnel and industrial relations can combine courses in the Department of Management with courses offered in psychology, economics, political science, and sociology to provide greater emphasis on the management of human resources. Students interested in management positions in manufacturing can combine courses in the Department of Management with those offered in economics, accounting, and technologies to provide greater emphasis on managing for increased productivity in manufacturing. Students interested in small business can focus their courses in order to achieve a better understanding of the problems of developing and managing the small firm.

Students who choose management as their area of concentration must satisfy all requirements for the B.B.A. degree. As part of the B.B.A. degree program, these students must satisfy the management major requirement and a contextual studies requirement. (These are specified in more detail in the curriculum)
