The management major focuses on imparting essential skills, particularly in the areas of leadership, teambuilding, group dynamics, negotiations, and conflict resolution. Students also complete coursework in human resource management and entrepreneurship. Many courses emphasize experiential learning in addition to conceptual content. This provides the opportunity to practice and develop skill sets in a classroom setting, in addition to learning ideas and theories about managerial behavior.
