Cynthia Lee, Professor and Group Coordinator,

Managing—whether it’s people, projects, or programs—is challenging and requires a considerable range of knowledge and skills. Effective managers must know the business, be interpersonally competent, behave ethically, and diagnose and deal with human and organizational dynamics. The aim of the management concentration is to increase both managerial knowledge and management skills. This involves both studying and practicing topics such as motivation, leadership, negotiation, conflict resolution, project management, managing teams, organizational change, and their impact on business results. 

Management concentrators participate in vibrant co-op experiences spanning a diverse range of business functions. These cover a wide number of possibilities such as business analytics, human resources, client and sales support, and project management. Many students who concentrate in management decide to get a second concentration, giving them the ability to work in teams and manage other people in whatever arena they find themselves.
