Management - ARCHIVE

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College (MANGT)

The objective of the Management major is to prepare students for the basic tasks of management--the coordination of human, material, and financial resources to accomplish organizational goals. Two options are offered.

The General Management Option helps prepare students for careers in personnel administration or a variety of general management positions. This option emphasizes knowledge relating to managing human resources but students also can select supporting business courses in other disciplines to prepare themselves to become managers of small businesses or units of larger business organizations, frequently in retail or service businesses.

The Operations Management Option provides students with an opportunity to develop the quantitative skills necessary to design and operate today's complex management systems. This option emphasizes course work in forecasting, production and inventory planning control, logistics, purchasing, and materials management. Students also can select from a special supporting course concentration in analytical methods and manufacturing processes to better prepare themselves for careers in manufacturing organizations.

For the B.S. degree in Management, a minimum of 125 credits is required. Each student must earn at least a grade of C in each 300- and 400-level course in the major field.
