and capabilities of human and other resources, as well as how the manager plans, organizes,
staffs, coordinates, and evaluates those resources in an organization and its environment.
Management Degree Program
Students who elect to major in management can choose from one of three concentrations:
Human Resource Management, Small Business and Entrepreneurship, and Organizational
When students earn an undergraduate business degree in management, what they’re really
pursuing is an education in how to help people and their organizations become more
successful. No matter what discipline students pursue, they will work with other people
and likely end up managing some of them, whether it’s a small team for a short-term
project or larger groups of people. Management is a skill that is relevant regardless
of industry or other areas of expertise, which is why many students choose it as a
second major or as a minor.

whether you are new to college, completing a degree started years ago, or seeking
an additional degree to enhance your skillsets.
