Majors

Management

Business is everywhere and touches all of our lives and every discipline.

A specialized offering from the Department of Economics and Business in the Management (B.A.) major. It is primarily intended to augment another major. It is a small, focused, major that will enhance other majors such as Politics and Government, Mathematics, Philosophy & Culture, Music, EHS, Psychology, History, Pre-Professional Programs, Theatre, and Communication Studies. As such, it will enable students to prepare for business related careers in non-business fields. An example would be museum administration for History majors with a Bachelor of Arts major in Management. This major also provides greater knowledge to enable the graduate to be more competent professionally, as would be the case, for example, with a combination of our Management major with an Exercise and Health Science major, because managing a sports team or organization requires direct managerial skill.

The major in Management (B.A.) provides practical training for the management of the organization in which you work in your primary field of interest. This major provides a skill-set that prepares the student to plan, organize, lead, and control people and resources to meet organizational objectives through specific foundational and intermediate level coursework in management and quantitative methods.
