Why Major in Management?
Are you the kind of person who likes to solve problems? Do you see the big picture when others see only parts of the whole? Are you good at bringing order to chaos? Do people gravitate to you? Do you bring people together to get things done? Are you good at turning your plans into accomplishments? Do you find yourself taking a leadership role in school and in your personal life? Do others see you as a highly ethical and moral person?
If you answered yes to many of these questions, a Management major be perfect for you.
