Managers are the cornerstone of all organizations and are responsible for seeing that tasks are completed and goals are met. In a wider sense, they make the key decisions that result in organizational performance and competitive advantage. The management major provides an opportunity to acquire the education and experience necessary to become a successful manager.
The study of management provides a sound foundation in quality management, organizational behavior, production issues related to products and services, personnel and human resources issues, international business, and overall policy issues, leadership skills, and strategic planning. Management students are recruited by local, regional, and national organizations. The management degree also provides the foundation for pursuing a graduate degree in business.
