Management Emphasis

 All organizations have managers at every level to provide the necessary direction to help the business succeed. No matter what the goals of an organization, solving problems and adapting to change requires familiarity with fundamental managerial functions. As a UNK management major you may begin your career in an entry level position in accounting, finance, human resources, production, or marketing. Managers must be skilled in identifying opportunities, using a firm's resources, organizing and controlling information, selecting and motivating people, making decisions, achieving defined objectives, and evaluating results.  Upon completing the program, students are prepared for positions as management trainee, supervisor, administrator, or other entry level positions.  

After proving your abilities, the opportunities for advancement are unlimited. The advancement in a managerial position depends on training, talent for working with people, and effort. Working with people is a primary focus of management; consequently, good written and oral communications skills are essential to success.
