Management Option

This major focuses on the activities of management in organizations. Course material covers leadership, power, decision-making, organizational structure and change, strategy and policy, and the integration of organizational functions (such as marketing and finance). The topics apply to business, government, health care, and other service organizations. This concentration is especially appropriate for students who seek roles as general managers and administrators at all levels of an organization, rather than roles as technical specialists. Students are also helped in developing a long-term perspective of both their own careers and the function of management in organizations and society.

Students must take a minimum of 12 credits, distributed as follows:
