Managers oversee everything from product development to processes. But any management job is really about managing people. In this minor, students will build a broad foundation in business and leadership skills to help them manage their own set of employees one day. Through case studies and experiential exercises, students will learn how motivation, group dynamics, conflict and other organizational behavior affect employees and their productivity. With electives like Human Resource Management and Small Business Management, students have the opportunity to apply basic training, staffing and compensating concepts to any small-sized company.
