Management majors participate in a variety of educational experiences that develop knowledge of managerial decision making and supervision of people to achieve organizational goals. The objective is to prepare students to be effective members and eventual leaders in for-profit and not-for-profit organizations of all sizes. Students learn fundamental principles of organizations, the nature and capabilities of people, how to function well in a team, and the methods involved in analyzing and solving managerial problems. Management majors gain insight and skills needed for careers as professional managers or as self-employed entrepreneurs. These skills include communication, group process, decision making, planning, human resource management, information systems, and ethics. Each student takes both required courses and electives. Via electives, flexibility is permitted so that a studentís program may be tailored toward his or her own career goals and objectives.
