Management is about organizing people and processes to meet business goals, as well as developing resources, measuring outcomes, and making decisions. If you enjoy making decisions, solving problems and taking charge, then you should consider a Major or Minor in Management in the Coles College of Business.

Every business has goals. Managers and leaders set the goals and figure out how to meet them through people and processes. With a BBA in management & entrepreneurship, you might work in human resources, supply chain management, project management, or even start your own business. Students who complete our BBA in Management are able to gain employment in a range of careers and industries such as healthcare, banking, real estate, hospitality, service related industries, staffing/recruiting, manufacturing, nonprofit organizations, or to start their own business. Take advantage of our many student organizations that can help you in your management career.

“Coles College's Management department is setting a standard for what business schools should look like today. The key to success, at any school, is not just the degree and the courses you take, but the future business partners, employers and employees you meet. My success is owed to being a part of a culture that understands that need and fosters an environment to help students build those relationships.”
