Major in Management

Use business principles to solve complex issues—in the corporate, government, or the nonprofit world

If you think management skills only apply to business, think again. The range of skills needed by corporations are also needed in the public and nonprofit sectors. You’ll graduate with leadership skills that you can take with you inside corporate board rooms, to committee meetings with elected officials, or to budget hearings on behalf of a government agency.

At the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, you’ll study many of the same topics as in a business management major, but our focus is on the public and nonprofit arena. These skills can be applied to the private sector, and many of our graduates develop careers that weave through the public, nonprofit, and corporate worlds.
