PROFESSOR GERALD I. SUSMAN, Chair of the Department of Management and Organization
This major helps provide students with knowledge and skills that general mangers need to deal with contemporary challenges, such as those related to motivating people from diverse cultures and nations, globalization of the economy, technology-intensive competition, and interdependence between political, economic, and ecological systems. The management core provides a general overview of the required knowledge and skills. Students can supplement that general overview with one of six areas of concentration. These areas of concentration allow students to explore subjects and issues of interest in greater depth. Completion of an area of concentration will help students prepare better for career opportunities in managerial and staff positions that utilize the specialized knowledge and skills that they will learn form the courses in their chosen area of concentration.
For the B.S. degree in Management, a minimum of 128 credits is required.
