Management Concentration

Effective Leadership Managing people, projects, and programs requires a considerable range of knowledge and skills. Assemble the right toolbox with concentration courses that emphasize “how to” manage effectively.

Alicia Kennedy, BSBA'17""Another great course was Negotiation in Business. It was very hands on. In almost every class, we were trying out a new negotiation technique or skill." — Alicia Kennedy, BSBA'17

Javier Nunez Silva, BSBA'17"In my current co-op, I have been able to listen to the firm's CEO give a talk about the company's future. I realized I would one day like to be in his shoes, running a company." — Javier Nunez Silva, BSBA'17

Study and Practice Effective Management

Effective managers must understand the business, be interpersonally competent, behave ethically, and diagnose and deal with human and organizational dynamics. The aim of the management concentration is both to increase knowledge of management so that students have a strong substantive “core” and to increase management skills. This includes studying the principles of motivation, leadership, negotiation, conflict resolution, project management, managing teams, organizational change, and their impact on business results. In addition, students have the opportunity to improve their managing skills.

The curriculum offers courses in a range of relevant management topics. Some of the courses, including the required core course, are primarily skills oriented; they teach “how to.” Others are more content oriented; they teach “about management.”
