Overview

The management department's curricula is designed to provide the student with the knowledge, skills, and perspectives necessary in managerial and administrative positions in a variety of organizations, both commercial and not-for-profit. To accomplish this goal, the student's program includes courses in three areas: the University's general education requirements to obtain an appreciation of and perspective on the liberal arts and sciences; the business core to obtain a sound knowledge of all functional areas of business organizations as well as the social, economic, and legal environments of organizations; and the courses to provide in-depth study of management.

The management major consists of seven courses. Four of these courses are required of all students who receive a major in management. The remaining three courses form one of three possible options. The human resource management option is offered for those students who want to pursue careers in departments such as human resource management, employee relations, or personnel. The supervisory management option is offered for students seeking management knowledge prerequisite for supervisory positions in industrial, service, retail, and wholesale type organizations. The small business management and entrepreneurial option is offered for students who plan to pursue a career in a small business or who have the goal of starting a small business.
