At the core of the Management major is coursework with an emphasis on leadership, entrepreneurial thinking, and strategic vision, three of the most prized assets of any successful business leader. Management majors are prepared to understand the “big picture” rather than focus on highly specialized, often rapidly changing, areas of study. This requires an ability to think and act on one’s own with a confidence that only comes from an ability to see and appreciate what most highly focused specialists cannot.
The Management major is available to students at the Storrs Campus.
Most of the complex problems we face in the business world today, whether they impact business or society at large, require the coordination of individuals, teams, and organizations to arrive at a solution. In Management, we strive to have our students ready to solve today’s and tomorrow’s complex business problems. Learn more about the Management major.
The Department of Management offers two core courses; Managerial and Interpersonal Behavior (MGMT 3101) and Strategic Management (MGMT 4900) along with elective courses in international business, entrepreneurship, management consulting, venture consulting, negotiations, managing a diverse workforce, and managing human capital. Students may follow the entrepreneurship concentration curriculum, or choose to pursue an area of emphasis in managing consulting, human capital management, or international business.

"My favorite class was Venture Planning, Management, & Growth (MGMT 3235) because my group was given free rein to create our own entrepreneurial venture throughout the semester...All of the business school faculty, especially those in the Management Department, have been instrumental in shaping my passion for business and desire for self-achievement."
