What to Expect
Through most of your freshman and sophomore years as a management major you’ll take courses drawn primarily from the university core curriculum. These courses promote the development of key skills and prepare you for the major course work.
Even as a freshman or sophomore, it’s never too early to visit the AT&T Career Resource Center in the Office of Professional and Career Development or to schedule a one-on-one appointment with a career coach. You should also review the schedule of professional development programs and seminars for topics of interest.
In your junior year you’ll start the major course work for your degree. As a management major, you have the opportunity to select a number of courses from a host of designated departmental electives.
In your senior year you’ll complete your course work, begin the job interview process, and possibly consider graduate school. As a management graduate, you are well-suited for employment as a first line supervisor or project manager. Additionally, you may want to consider a management training program. These programs allow you to rotate among the various departments in order to develop familiarity with the whole organization and its functions and provide a direct career path for moving up in an organization.
