Management is a dynamic and rewarding career arena with many emerging opportunities as more and more organizations recognize the centrality of "people management" to organizational success. Skills in problem solving, human relations, and leading change give Management Program graduates an edge in building careers in a wide range of industries, including financial services, retail firms, consulting services, technology, and government. Additionally, the self-awareness and understanding of others that are central to Management studies prepares learners for future leadership engagements of all types. Many past students work in human resources functions within large organizations, while others have started their own entrepreneurial ventures.
