Major Description:
Management is using human, financial, technology, and material resources to meet organizational goals. Managers must be skilled in planning, organizing, leading, and controlling these resources. Managers recognize change and make decisions in an uncertain environment.

The Management major prepares students to manage challenges and leverage opportunities in a contemporary, changing, and global business environment. Students majoring in Management lead in teams, develop decision making skills, and demonstrate their abilities through competition.
