Management

Consider a management profession
A management degree provides you with the skills necessary to plan, direct, and oversee operations and employees as a manager. You may supervise an entire company, government office, specific department, or territory. Managers often specialize in one field, such as sales, finance, health services, human resources, social and community services, government, and education.

Is management right for you?
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
  • Flexible – able to see things from different perspectives
