Our Management major prepares students to pursue careers a wide variety of corporations and organizations.

Flexibility and Double Majors
This flexibility allows for a double major in another business discipline or the addition of a concentration in Social Entrepreneurship without having to take a large number of additional classes.

Entrepreneurship, Management and Marketing Advisory Board
The Advisory Board for the Department of Entrepreneurship, Management and Marketing plays several important roles as a conduit to the business community.

While some of the board members offer internships and jobs with their companies, the introductions our board members give us to other professionals in the business community are extremely valuable – both in terms of employment opportunities and mentorship for our students.
