Management Concentrations

Management concentrations include General Management, Human Resource Management, and Entrepreneurship.  Managers combine human and material resources to accomplish organizational objectives.  Such results are achieved through the managerial processes of planning, leading, organizing and controlling.  Today’s competitive, global business environment presents many challenges to managers including managing change and innovation, managing diversity, developing a global perspective, becoming an effective leader, and improving organizational performance by focusing on quality and continuous improvement.  The management concentrations are designed to prepare students to effectively face these challenges in an environment of risk, uncertainty, and ambiguity.  All management concentrations require a minimum of eighteen (18) credit hours.  Students must complete MGMT 3490 with a C+ or above in order to take additional management courses, to complete a management concentration, or to complete a secondary specialization in management.  A student may choose more than one concentration with a resulting increase in number of required courses.1

1Note: Students completing more than one management concentration cannot apply more than six common credits to each management concentration.
