Management is a broad area of study within business. It covers topics from human resource management and strategic planning to leadership and innovation. Any organization, whether it is small start-up or a large Fortune 100 firm, for profit or non-profit, government or private, requires management. A management minor is suitable for students who want to complement their major with “soft skills.” Surveys of employers have frequently found they prefer to recruit graduates with leadership, communication, entrepreneurial, and strategic thinking skills.
Occupations in the field of management have a projected above average growth rate between 7-12% over the next 10 year based on current employment trends
