PROFESSOR LINDA KLEBE TREVINO, Chair of the Department of Management and Organization

This major helps provide students with knowledge and skills that general managers need to deal with contemporary challenges, such as those related to leading and motivating people from diverse cultures, designing new organizational structures, creating global strategies, 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 option or the general management option, which requires a Penn State approved minor.

HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT OPTION: The human resources management option 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, and change management.

GENERAL MANAGEMENT OPTION: The general management option requires enrollment in a Penn State approved minor, provides students with more in-depth knowledge in an area of expertise from outside the major, and prepares students for career opportunities in managerial and staff positions that utilize the specialized knowledge and skills developed in the minor area.

For the B.S. degree in Management, a minimum of 128 credits is required (at least 15 credits must be taken at the 400 level).
