Business students in the Management program at Roger Williams University learn how to budget, organize, plan, hire, direct, control and otherwise manage complex organizations. Management students are challenged to think about issues such as diversity, ethics, politics and the many other dynamics that play a role in every work environment. The Management program at RWU is characterized by a broad variety of classes ranging from managing human resources to planning and control. Academic coursework is complemented by an internship requirement, which provides a hands-on component that amplifies the concepts taught in the classroom, and Management students have great flexibility in choosing electives to fit their interests.
As with all majors at RWU, the Management program offers numerous opportunities for student/faculty research and presentations. Recently, two projects, “The Impact of 'Green Collar Workers' on Organizations” and “Leadership for the Next Generation” were presented at the Northeast Decision Sciences Annual Meeting.
Graduates are prepared for management careers in human resources, procurement and purchasing, administrative services and health services, to name just a few.
