Are leaders born or made? In Stetson University's management programs, you will learn that the answer is both. Whether you are a natural born leader - diplomatic, passionate and self-motivated - or looking to develop the leader within, a degree in management will help you grow as both a business professional and a leader. Our programs prepare you for what the world needs now and what it will need next.
As a program heavily anchored in behavioral and social sciences, our management program at Stetson University stands out among the rest. Our management students receive a strong foundation in management and leadership as well as theoretical and practical knowledge in applied behavioral science. You will learn to integrate theory and best practice into everyday experience. The program is distinguished by its focus on hands-on, experiential learning and individualized development.
You may choose to enhance their educational experiences by pursuing internships for academic credit. Stetson University management students have interned with Frontier Communications, Tampa Bay Lightning, Orlando Science Center, Brown & Brown Insurance Companies, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Target Stores, Marriott hotels, Dillard's stores, NASCAR, United Way and various government agencies.
