Management students club meeting

Managers are needed in a wide variety of different types of organizations – business and non-business, large and small, foreign and domestic. In all of these organizations, managers need technical, human and conceptual skills to help achieve organizational goals.

Management courses are designed to teach the fundamental principles underlying organizations, to emphasize education which will improve students’ thought processes, to provide familiarity with the analytical tools of management, and to develop in the student an ability to use the techniques involved in analyzing and evaluating managerial problems and making sound decisions.

Students may pursue a wide variety of academic and career interests through four different management emphases. These emphases include: (1) general management, (2) human resources management, (3) operations management, and (4) law. The entrepreneurship concentration is also housed in the management department.

The Business Advising Center, Langsdorf Hall 731, provides information on admissions, curriculum and graduation requirements; registration and grading procedures; residence and similar academic matters. In addition, the Management Department provides advising on career opportunities within the Management and Entrepreneurship Concentrations:
