Students will gain an understanding of people and how to recruit, select, and lead them in an organizational setting. Students will also learn how to manage in a global environment and to be socially responsible and ethical in their business dealings.
The primary objective of the Management Emphasis is to prepare students for entry-level management positions in business, not-for-profit organizations, and government. The emphasis also prepares students for continuing education in MBA or other relevant master’s degree programs.
