About the Major
Management is a necessary activity in every organization
whatever the size, scope, or purpose. Managers set the organization's
objectives and lead people and equipment to achieve these goals.
While these basic functions of management haven't changed, the
growth of the global economy, technological transformation,
and diversity in the work place are changing how business organizations
operate. Preparing students to be successful managers in these
dynamic times is the management faculty's purpose.
Management is an interdisciplinary field, meaning that everything
a student learns at Ramapo College will contribute to a career
as a manager. Students learn to analyze and solve management
problems using social and behavioral sciences, decision methods,
leadership, communication, public policy, computers, and technologies.
There are opportunities to join clubs and participate in extracurricular
programs, gain practical experience as a leader, and meet and
network with businesswomen and men.
Management education is broad and prepares students for a variety
of jobs, including those in general management, human resource
management, and operations management, as well as entry to graduate
school and postgraduate professional education.
Students completing this program receive a B.S. degree in Business
