Management Major

Management majors study the theory and the practice of managing people and organizations. Emphasis is given to the nature of the management function; the management of people; the relationship between business and society; and to the behavioral, social, and environmental factors that influence effective organization and managerial performance. Research efforts in the field are examined to develop fundamental principles and concepts, which can serve as a rational basis for managerial action. Students may choose one of three concentrations: human resource management, business and society, or entrepreneurship.

For a 48-credit major in management, students complete the following:

All management majors must complete a management capstone course in their senior year. For Fall 2017 only, MG 0340 will satisfy the capstone requirement for majors. For Spring 2018 and beyond, majors will satisfy the capstone requirement with either MG 0385 or MG 0390. Seniors completing both MG 0385 and MG 0390 during Spring 2018, specifically, will earn credit for the management capstone and a management elective.
