You've always been a leader, and you know that responsible leadership isn't as much about managing a team as it is about managing relationships with respect and honesty. For you, teamwork isn't just a buzzword; it's a way to achieve a greater good. You believe it's your calling to lead by example-to demonstrate how sound business can be both efficient and ethical.
In today's business environment, management requires ethical decision-making and an ability to foster cooperative relationships, within your office walls and around the globe. From motivation to analytics, management requires a diverse set of interpersonal and professional skills used for the betterment of an organization.
Strong, ethical managers are sought by organizations everywhere. The Palumbo-Donahue School of Busienss provides management majors with core courses and electives designed to make you marketable in a variety of careers.
Combining this knowledge with that of another functional area of business, such as marketing or information systems, will better prepare you for successful careers in your desired fields.
Management faculty introduce you to best practices of leadership, business-government relations, sustainability, critical decision-making, organizational behavior and strategic project management and more while guiding you in how to apply such skills in today's economy. You are encouraged to join the student business association, the Society for the Advancement of Management (S.A.M.) and to take advantage of internship opportunities to help sharpen both personal and professional talents necessary for a successful career in management.
