You might be a Management and Leadership major if you:

  • Are resilient and flexible
  • Don't wait to be told but take charge
  • Like to be involved in every aspect of a project

The Management and Leadership major can be summarized in three words:

Strategic

We aim to position our students early on to not just find a job but a calling. We also place an emphasis on our students developing strategic or soft skills like communication, leadership and resilience.

Flexible

In their sophomore year, students develop a curriculum plan – and get to choose two electives that complement their preferred career path. 

Global

We offer a curriculum that has a global emphasis built in. The final required course is the Global Capstone, where students immerse themselves in management and have a unique global experience.
