The Department of Management offers an undergraduate major in management. In addition, the department offers two options under the management major. These options are human resource management (HRM) and sports management. Students may choose the general management major, or they can pursue a more focused study in one of the three options described in more detail below. For information about the required coursework, please visit the Degree Requirements page.

Management Major

The major in management offers dynamic, exciting possibilities for study and employment. It prepares students for leadership careers with business or nonprofit organizations. It involves the study of knowledge bases and applications relevant to management careers. The discipline of management utilizes analytical processes to apply relevant theory and applications to creative problem solving. Some examples of topics include leadership dynamics, strategic management, planning courses of action, organizational behavior and performance, resource allocation and administration, and building management systems. Majors are typically employed by organizations of all types and sizes as managers or staff specialists. The major has flexibility so that the student may elect work in allied fields, including entrepreneurship and new venture development. The management major has much to offer for those interested in leadership roles in business and public sector organizations.

Human Resource Management Option

The work in Human Resource Management is organized as an option under the Management major. It is designed to prepare students for careers in Human Resource Management or for management careers in a variety of venues. HRM professionals may find opportunities in any size organization. Anything that concerns the work force of an organization is the concern of the HRM professional. This includes topics such as compensation administration, forecasting demand for personnel, labor relations and collective bargaining, recruitment of potential employees, and training and development. For those who enjoy working with both the people and the management systems side of organization, a career as an HRM professional offers many opportunities for career satisfaction and personal development.

Sports Management Option

The sports industry is a growing segment of our economy. Whether it is at the amateur, college, minor league, or professional level, sports organizations are in need of graduates with business savvy. Sports enterprises are becoming increasingly concerned with their bottom lines and they need employees who have expertise in both business management and the sports industry. As a competitive advantage, our sports management program is one of few in the country that is housed within a business management department. Our classes offer students the opportunity to gain important business management skills, while learning about the unique nature of sports organizations.

Business Sustainability Option

A sustainable enterprise is built around the triple bottom line imperative of protecting and enhancing the current and long term future of the organization, the quality of life of the people impacted by the organization, and the health of the natural environment. There is a growing need for individuals with training in sustainable enterprise and the job opportunities for well-trained undergraduates are increasing.
The Business Sustainability option prepares students for this growing and exciting field with extra classwork in business ethics, corporate social responsibility and sustainable business practices.

Nonprofit Management Option

The nonprofit sector plays an important part in our society and in our economy; providing services and experiences for citizens that are unmet by government or the private sector, or can be delivered in a different way. Many students volunteer in the nonprofit sector, and will continue to do so after graduation. As the sector matures, expectations of professionalism and business knowledge have increased. Students in the nonprofit management program will gain skills and knowledge about the nonprofit sector and organizations that will prepare them to enter the sector as professionals or board members at a critical time—as the Baby Boomer generation that has been leading in this sector retires. Topics include differences between the for-profit and nonprofit sectors in regards to generating revenue, managing a blended workforce of paid staff and volunteers, public image, accountability, and measures of success.
