The Concentration

All Management students must select one of the following three tracks:

Human Resource Track

The Human Resource track provides students with opportunities for learning a mixture of courses oriented around a general theme of interpersonal relations and dynamics of organizing to achieve common goals. This includes teamwork, working effectively with others, and interacting productively with an increasingly diverse body of co-workers. This track will emphasize courses in organizational behavior, human resource management, small business management, and communication skills. Many of these courses include “involved student learning,” in which students are asked to take an active role in the classroom in various activities and exercises.

International Business Track

The International Business Track is designed to provide students with the business competencies and skills essential for careers in international business. Courses will enable students to understand the global business environment, analyze global business opportunities, develop global strategies, and perform global business activities.

Strategy/Entrepreneurship Track

The Strategy/Entrepreneurship Track provides students with the opportunity to focus on the process of guiding the future direction of their business organizations. Courses are designed to help students make key business decisions, including how to start a business, grow a business, and guide a business in an uncertain and changing business environment.


All courses in the management concentration must be completed with a letter grade of C– or better.
