MANAGEMENT

Major Overview
Management provides an understanding of business from a broad perspective. It is a business specialization that is particularly beneficial for individuals who wish to pursue careers in small to medium sized companies, in government or non-profit organizations in general management positions or in positions which have multiple functional responsibilities. It would also be useful for entrepreneurs who want to start and run their own businesses. It prepares individuals for careers as Branch Managers, Compensation/Benefits Managers, Entrepreneurs, Facility Managers, Human Resource Managers, Materials/Inventory Control Managers, Operations Analysts, Operations Managers, Plant Managers, Production Managers, Project Managers, Quality Managers, and Risk Managers.
