The Management major brings managerial knowledge, awareness, and skills to students considering management-track jobs, or jobs in human resource management, small businesses or non-profit organizations, and management consulting.

The Management Major offers a choice of two distinctive tracks, which emphasize valuable managerial skills that are sought out by employers, such as conflict resolution, negotiation, decision-making, and leadership.

  • Managing Human Resources:  This track prepares students to work as human resource professionals or in management consulting organizations or to broaden their interpersonal skills. Recent jobs obtained by Lehigh students in the Managing People track include Rotational management jobs and Sports managers.
  • Small Business and Non Profit Management: This track prepares students specifically to work in small businesses including family owned businesses, non-profit organizations, startups, and in rapid growth environments. Lehigh students majoring in the Small Business and Non Profit Management track are likely to enter management-level positions in smaller businesses, continue employment in their family business, or develop entrepreneurial ventures.
