What can you do with an applied management degree?
Managers typically plan, direct, and oversee operations and employees. They may supervise an entire company, government office, specific department, or territory. Managers often specialize in a particular field, such as sales, finance, health services, human resources, social and community services, government, and education.
MSU applied management students can apply classroom knowledge to real-world settings through internships. Many internships are initiated by employers, but students may - with departmental approval - seek out and develop their own internship opportunities. Internships may be full time, part time, or project oriented. All internships provide students with great hands-on learning opportunities and some lead to offers of employment.
Do you have what it takes to be a good manager?
Successful managers are skilled:
- Leaders - emotionally stable, enthusiastic and self-assured
- Communicators - relate well both to staff and superiors
- Organizers - make and execute plans to meet employers' goals
- Problem solvers - identify and resolve problems
