Management is the act of getting people together to accomplish desired goals, and includes the functions of planning, organizing, staffing, leading or directing, and controlling an organization or a group of people. It also encompasses the deployment and utilization of human resources, financial resources, technological resources, and natural resources. At Mary Baldwin, we approach this discipline with an eye towards creating a sustainable business culture, while giving students a well-rounded view of basic management principles.
Management is available as a minor.
Why study management at Mary Baldwin University?
This dynamic minor is recommended for students who want more focus on the theory and practice of management. The management minor can be readily paired with not only the business major, but with other liberal arts majors across the college, offering a deeper understanding about the art and science of management.
