The Management Concentration prepares students to be successful in the organizations they join and lead by providing courses which integrate the OB, strategy, & communication expertise of our faculty. In the required undergraduate curriculum, students learn foundational content that builds competencies in four areas that are critical to short- and long-term career success: 1) strategy formulation & analysis, 2) leading teams and organizations, 3) decision-making & negotiation, and 4) managerial communication.
The Management Concentration focuses on strategic leadership or how leaders manage and improve organizations over time. This concentration has particular relevance to those students who plan to work in advisory businesses (e.g., consulting, investment banking), launch their own organizations, or work in other contexts in which they will interface with senior leaders early in their careers. The cornerstone of this 9-credit concentration is the required Strategic Leadership of Organizations course, which is complemented with two courses selected from a varied set of high-quality electives.
