Description of Program
Management and leadership skills are essential for a successful career and promotion in any industry. The Management and Leadership program is designed to develop these professional skills via courses in leadership, team building, influence, interpersonal communication, and organizational analysis. The professional development focus of the management and leadership discipline provides a critical link with the practicing professional community. This relationship is established and maintained with the Management and Leadership program through the use of skills-development workshops and internships.
While technical skills can be critical in landing an entry-level job, the management and leadership major is designed to support your unique professional goals. The management and leadership major is offered only as a second major and is designed to complement the disciplinary knowledge and skills of the student's primary major in accounting, finance, international business, business systems and analytics, or marketing or the minor in risk management. A minor in management and leadership can also be easily designed by students majoring in a non-business field.
