Whether you believe leaders are born or made, this major will teach you to think like a tech-focused problem-solver who confidently manages people and projects.
The education offered in the Management program makes this a suitable degree for students with a general interest in business and management who are looking for exposure to a variety of industry categories to help them understand where their interests lie and how to take leadership roles in such fields. Common careers include business analyst, management consultant and project manager. You'll also benefit from a flexible curriculum that will give you insight on global leadership, project management, entrepreneurship and beyond.
Students who complete the Management major combine a broad business and technology skills set with the project and people management skills required of entry-level employees looking to prove they belong on the leadership track.
Management today is about getting more accomplished with fewer resources. That means leaders must be creative in how they approach processes, innovative in how they manage projects and able to effectively engage and motivate their staffs. The Management program at Stevens prepares such leaders by emphasizing both analytical decision making and the ability to think like a fast-moving entrepreneur.
The Management major includes flexibility, so students can explore an industry of interest and refine the kind of management instruction they will receive.

The practice core at Stevens is where you’ll apply the skills you’ve learned in real business simulations, culminating in the Stevens Innovation Expo.
