Bachelor of Science 

The management curriculum develops students’ analytical, critical, and strategic thinking skills to prepare them for local, national, and global leadership positions in a variety of organizations.

Students majoring in management develop competencies in a number of areas, including:

  • Self-awareness
  • Management skills, including those grounded in the liberal arts, required to thrive in 21st century organizations
  • Leadership and teamwork
  • Qualitative and quantitative reasoning
  • Strategic thinking and innovation.

Management competencies and skills are developed through diverse instructional approaches, exposing students to current trends in management and leadership theory and practice and through experiential learning opportunities in real-world settings.

The management curriculum is complemented by the College’s liberal arts foundation, enhancing students’ ability to contribute to a business environment that is becoming increasingly global. Leading and motivating people, making ethical decisions, solving business problems, and working in global, competitive, and dynamic environments are challenges for which we prepare our management majors.

The Department of Management offers core courses that develop students’ foundational skills, ones they will need to meet these challenges. The management curriculum also provides the flexibility of electives in areas such as leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship, which allow students to deepen their knowledge and skills in more specific areas of interest.

The department also offers its majors a number of valuable educational opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. These include:

  • Participating in a management internship in a specific field of interest. Such an internship may be incorporated into a practicum in which student interns share their experience with each other as well as meet with business professionals from various companies;
  • Complementing an interest in international business with foreign language study and a semester or year abroad;
  • Examining current management issues such as globalization and workplace diversity in core and elective courses;
  • Participating in a variety of student clubs and guest speaker forums related to management topics;
  • Designing and completing an independent study project in the senior year;
  • Benefiting personally from the department’s active relationship with the College’s career placement center;
  • Connecting with a growing valuable alumni network as well as with upper-class management majors as a complement to the department’s advising process.
