Management majors participate in a variety of educational experiences that develop knowledge of people, teams, and organizations. This knowledge will enable students to be effective members and eventual leaders in for-profit and not-for-profit organizations of all sizes. Students learn what to pay attention to, how to analyze situations and then to make decisions to achieve the best results. These experiences enhance emotional intelligence, interpersonal and leadership skills.

This Barney Club unites students who are interested in entrepreneurship and/or management as a career. The club provides an opportunity for students to develop their leadership and management skills in these areas through service projects, such Students for Free Enterprise, and contacts with professionals in the field. Guest speakers share their success stories and experiences and provide opportunities for students to learn and establish contacts. Field trips to companies also give students a picture of how these principles are put into practice. Contact the Management/Marketing Department at 768-4566 for more information
