Management majors study how to effectively achieve organizational goals by planning, organizing, directing, and controlling activities that occur in different parts of the organization. Some classes may focus, for example, on how to manage internal operations, information systems, human resources, or organizational culture. A management major will study how to bring these resources together for success. The study of management gives us the tools not only to create a vision but also the tools to achieve that vision.
