The Management concentration affords and encourages opportunities for internships, co-ops and study abroad experiences. Required courses feature skill and resume-building Leadership Labs, and client-based organizational consulting and proposal projects. The senior capstone course on Strategic Management features a business simulation called “The Business Strategy Game” where the class breaks into teams to carry out senior-level, case-related assignments including creating a competitive strategy, respected brand image and financial and market leadership plans.

Outside of the classroom, you can join the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Club, where you’ll have the opportunity to manage and execute strategic plans of action from College-based initiatives to high-caliber social events with Fortune 100 executives.

Enactus is an international non-profit organization that works with leaders in business and higher education to mobilize university students to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leaders. This club is a great way to apply classroom takeaways to running community service projects.
