Bachelor of Science in Business with a Concentration in Management

The study of management focuses on taking a leadership role within an organization. In the management major, you will learn about managing change, negotiating with constituencies, addressing the unique issues involved with new projects and companies, and managing an organization’s most valuable resource, its people.

Management majors begin their careers with a wide variety of organizations in industry, nonprofits and government. Careers in management involve organizing people and resources to solve complex problems that organizations face. As such, management majors have careers that span a rich variety of fields, organizations and functional areas.

Academic Advising

The mission of the academic advising program in the Judd Leighton School of Business and Economics is to promote academic success, student satisfaction, and increased retention by providing students with advisors to help students make educational, career, and personal decisions.

The policy on advising requires that students meet with their academic advisors at least once each year, and freshmen and sophomores are required to meet with their academic advisor prior to each semester’s enrollment. Advising holds are placed on all freshmen and sophomores prior to advance registration and are released following advising appointments. To determine who your advisor is and how to contact them, see One.IU.
