What can I expect from a management minor?

The management minor is an excellent complement to any course of study at Western Michigan University because it provides the opportunity to learn and practice key teamwork and leadership skills.

Recent WMU students who graduated with a management minor earned their majors in a variety of areas such as civil engineering, interdisciplinary health services, communication studies, computer information systems, nursing and sales and business marketing. These graduates not only have the discipline-specific skills of their major degree fields, but also the knowledge and experience to effectively work in teams and lead others.

The three required core courses in the management minor will give you a broad background in business while also providing key management knowledge and experiences that can help you succeed in any type of organization. Teamwork, leadership, communication, and ethics are all key parts of the management minor core. These courses include:

  • BUS 1750—Business Enterprise
  • MGMT 2500—Organizational Behavior
  • MGMT 3010—Project Management

Management minors also choose three management electives allowing them to further their management training in key areas such as business and society, human resource management and entrepreneurship.
