About the Program
Management majors mean business. They effectively lead, coordinate and communicate innovative solutions in all aspects of an organization from strategy to operations to human resources. They are adaptable leaders with strong roots in analytics, complemented by solid communication skills that enable them lead in the business world.
A multi-functional approach to coursework allows you to discover different business areas at the same time like finance, strategy, law and organizational behavior. You’ll refine your critical thinking, communication and analytical skills as you explore these different aspects of business.
The General Management major allows students to gain depth in the areas of human resource management, strategic analysis, innovation management and organizational structure. Whether a business is a Fortune 500 company with thousands of employees or a small machine shop in Indiana, the management team has to be able to think strategically, understand its competitive environment and motivate its employees to pursue the company goals. This major is a favorite choice for Krannert students and provides the ideal base upon which to build a career.
Graduates pursue many different career directions. Some begin in corporate management rotational programs, as account executives or as project managers. Others join the team of a start-up. You will find Krannert management graduates in companies like Boeing, General Motors, Amazon.com, Tesla, and Target Corporation.
