About Management

Nearly all career ladders in business involve being promoted into leadership. The Management major prepares you for this by developing the skills you need to lead people in organizations, including how to manage people and human resources; how to analysis and solve organizational problems; how to lead teams; and how to be a more effective negotiator. By the time you complete the Management degree, you will have skills employers desire but are most often missing in new college graduates: leadership, communication, teamwork, and critical thinking.
