Management Major Guide

As a Management major, you’ll learn how to manage people and processes in different kinds of work settings — including teams distributed geographically. You’ll get a solid foundation in essential business concepts such as accounting, finance, marketing and economics. And you’ll learn how to create healthy work relationships and positive environments where employees (and organizations) flourish.

Austin is one of the country’s fastest-growing cities and economies, and you’ll be able to choose from a wide range of internships. Plus, The Bill Munday School of Business partners with local organizations like Capital Factory and Impact Hub Austin that will help build your network.

Through your classes and hands-on experience, you’ll develop the problem-solving skills and collaborative instinct that are the hallmarks of a good leader. You’ll start your career in human resources, recruiting, nonprofit leadership, government or virtually any type of industry ready to succeed.

The Classrom and Beyond
