Business Administration Major: Management Option (B.S.)

https://paulcollege.unh.edu/node/440

The Option in Management provides students with opportunities to develop a substantial foundation in the principles of managing the human, organizational, technical, and financial resources of organizations to enhance strategic competitiveness. Courses emphasize critical thinking, problem-solving, planning, interpersonal skills related to ethical leadership in the global economy, managing innovation and technology, organizational change and sustainability, and international and cross-cultural issues in organizations.

The option emphasizes the generalist's mindset in concert with a specialist's functional understanding of the firm. Future career paths include an array of management, supervisory, entrepreneurial, human resources, and other positions in for-profit and non-profit organizations. The option is also recommended for students considering graduate education in management or law.

A typical plan of study follows, showing the major-required courses. Students take 16-18 credits per semester. Discovery Program requirements (including the Inquiry requirement in the first two years) and elective courses are taken as well. Students are expected to follow this course plan. In the first three semesters, students cannot take more than two major courses in a single semester. The options have different requirements, which are provided below.
