Developing the skills of effective managers
St. Scholastica's Management major helps students develop these characteristics through a program that integrates specialized management principles within a broad liberal arts education. Core studies include: human resource management, communication, strategic planning, economics, accounting, finance, marketing, and ethics. Further, all of these courses are set in a context that recognizes the global environment in which modern managers today operate.
The major emphasizes the human dimensions of management and teaches students how to apply theoretical concepts to the solution of real world problems. To this end, students are encouraged to undertake an applied internship with local or regional businesses and service organizations. Students generally do internships during their junior or senior years.
