Managers motivate and coordinate people in order to achieve organizational goals. Management involves the critical functions of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. Professional managers think strategically, and work with others to lead organizations or departments to successful outcomes.

Management education enables one to pursue varied career opportunities in organizations. Whether entering a management training program in a large organization, or working in a smaller organization assisting a department manager or supervisor, a career in management can start in many different parts of an organization. People who move into management positions are generally effective problem solvers and communicators. They are successful at organizing work and motivating others to accomplish tasks. Management education is also an excellent preparation for further graduate studies such as an MBA, or professional studies such as law school.

Students interested in a career in management will have a broad-based business education, which includes financial management, logistics, operations, human resources, business strategy, economics and statistics. In addition, management students will be grounded in the following areas: leadership, organizational behavior, human resource management, problem solving, and negotiation.
