Students admitted to the Broad College prior to Fall 2015 with a General Management major must adhere to that major’s requirements.

The management major allows students to explore courses from the several departments within the Broad College. Students enjoy a high degree of flexibility in selecting courses to satisfy the major field of concentration requirement. The student’s program of study is designed within the context of the student’s personal, academic, and career goals.

Graduates of the management program may seek entry–level positions in business and government which require a breadth of knowledge within the general field of business, as well as specific business–related skills.
