MANAGEMENT Dramatic and fundamental changes are facing the management profession and the world. The management major prepares students to successfully manage businesses of the future, which will incorporate holistic and systemic thinking into the decision making process, i.e., understanding the societal and environmental impact of business and economic decisions. The demands on the managers of the future to think critically and to analyze systemic impacts will require heavy reliance on analytics (data storage and modeling) and implies a basic understanding of process, measurement, forecasting, functional interdependence, causality, forward thinking, and technology. The inherent networked architecture behind successful thinking and successful companies is basic to management’s goals and activities. The opportunity to study abroad and understand the international linkages that constitute our global economy is real and encouraged. Students will learn firsthand how to develop and manage projects for external clients. Essential to this program is the understanding that economic activity was designed and has the duty to positively enhance the human condition.
