  • About

    Today's business leaders are confronted with globalization, entrepreneurial innovation, new technologies and the ethical implications of their actions. They must concurrently understand the organization and its environment while setting the strategy, goals and direction and managing the firm's human resources.

    The Management area at the Syms School of Business offers an interdisciplinary major with an emphasis on managing in a global environment and dealing with the human and organizational issues that face executives in the public, private and non-profit sectors.


    Students choosing to major in Management at the Syms School of Business specialize in one of two concentrations: Human and Organizational Studies or Entrepreneurship.

    Human and Organizational Studies

    The Human and Organizational Studies concentration focuses on the human resource function in organizations. Students gain both skills and knowledge related to employment, placement, compensation, benefits, job analysis, training and development and employee relations. An interdisciplinary background is necessary in this field and students are encouraged to take courses in the behavioral sciences, social sciences and business.

    This concentration prepares students for careers in human and social capital including human resources departments, management consulting and legal careers.


    The Entrepreneurship concentration provides students with the skills and knowledge to launch, build and sustain a new venture or small business. This concentration integrates theory with hands-on practical experience, including creating business plans, field projects within existing small businesses and utilizing faculty mentors from the entrepreneurial business community.

    International Business Studies

    Students who wish to broaden their understanding of global issues that affect business can tailor their management studies by selecting from a number of international courses. Beyond the required courses in management, the remaining elective courses to complete the major can be selected from any number of international courses. For example, management majors may include international finance, international economics and a course in cross cultural aspects of international business as part of the overall requirements for their major.
