Management is available as a major, an area of concentration or, for non-Krannert students, a minor.
For a Management major you need to successfully complete 124 credit hours within the official plan of study. Within those 124 hours are lots of opportunities for electives. A concentration (if you take one) takes the place of some of these electives. Say, for example, that you decide to major in Management with a concentration in Accounting. Out of your 124 credit hours, 12 would be selected from the Accounting concentration. Upon graduation you would earn a bachelor of science in management with a concentration in accounting.
Or, if you major in Accounting, Economics or Industrial Management you can choose to add a concentration in Management. Out of the 124 credit hours required for graduation, 12 would be from the Management concentration. Your degree would state that you earned a bachelor of science in either accounting, economics or industrial management with a concentration in management.
You can take more than one concentration. Many of our students pursue multiple concentrations to complement their interests and add strength in a particular area. Talk with your advisor about your goals.
If you are not enrolled in the Krannert School of Management but you are a Purdue student, you may choose to minor in Management. This requires you to successfully complete 15 credit hours from the Management minor plan of study. You would graduate with your bachelor's degree in your chosen major with a minor in management.
This provides you with a lot of options. Talk with your advisor about your plans, interests and goals. Your advisor is the best person to work with to create an academic plan that will challenge you, fulfill you and prepare you for an exciting career.
