Management Emphases


All students with a management concentration must choose one of the following emphases:

General Management

Managers give direction to organizations by developing goals and objectives, providing leadership and deciding how to use organizational resources to accomplish those goals. Managers perform four vital functions: planning-the formulating goals and strategies; organization-arranging and structuring organizational resources; leadership-motivating and leading the human resources; and control-measuring the progress toward the goals. A key focus in management is on managing people, the core of any organization.
