Strategy and Organizational Management


If managing people and leading organizations is your goal, the Strategy and Organizational Management major is your answer.  Strategy and Organizational Management graduates lead change. Using strategic thinking and people skills, they manage effectively across a wide variety of organizations. 

You’ll study the foundations of business – accounting, economics, statistics, etc., then develop business strategy from different angles using innovative technology, organizational change and competitive strategy. You’ll explore things like how to position your organization to outperform the competition, and how to recruit, develop and motivate staff to build a high performance team.

Strategy and Organizational Management graduates become business leaders. They are entrepreneurs, change leaders, internal organizational consultants, human resource managers and management consultants.

Two concentrations were specifically designed to complement the Strategy and Organizational Management major:

Global Leadership and Human Capital

Human resource management practices in organizations rely on soft skills that are critical for successful managers. Adding the Global Leadership and Human Capital concentration to your major will enhance your skills in change leadership, negotiating, and managing a global department. If you are interested in a career as a Human Resource Manager, Organizational Development/Effectiveness Director, Change Agent, or Management Consultant this concentration is a great fit.

Technology, Innovation & Entrepreneurship

A great addition if you are looking to start a new company or work on new product development and innovation teams. You’ll develop a deeper knowledge of how to drive innovation in organizations, and an understanding of the relationships between strategy, technology, and innovation.  Emphasis is placed on entrepreneurial activity in both new startup and established firms.
