Management Major

Management is one of the most powerful but invisible fields in American institutions. If you ask them, senior executives in accounting firms, banks, manufacturing organizations, consulting firms or retail organizations will tell you management is the key challenge they face on a day-to-day basis.


Whitman's management major will be your first step in a career that will make you think strategically, honing your natural leadership skills with respect to managing people, learning to analyze firm strategies and industry dynamics and understanding the evolving global environment in order to address multi-faceted business challenges. Courses in personnel and organizational behavior, along with strategic management and law, will prepare you to guide organizations and the people within them.
