PROFESSOR CHARLES SNOW, Chair, Department of Management and Organization

This major provides students with knowledge and skills that general managers need to deal with contemporary challenges, such as those related to leading and motivating people, designing organizational structures, and balancing the interest of multiple stakeholders in a complex political, legal, and ethical environment. The management core provides a general overview of the required knowledge and skills required for effectively managing people and organizations. Students then supplement that overview with either the human resources management concentration or the global and strategic management concentration.

The human resources management concentration prepares students for a professional career in human resources management, and develops skills and expertise in areas such as planning, staffing, job design, employee development, performance management, compensation, change management, and managing diversity.

The global and strategic management concentration provides students with broad knowledge about managing in a global competitive environment. In addition, students choose an area of expertise from outside the major. This concentration prepares students for career opportunities in managerial and staff positions that utilize the specialized knowledge and skills developed in the supporting area or minor.

For the B.S. degree in Management, a minimum of 120 credits is required (at least 15 credits must be taken at the 400 level).
