Management & Leadership majors are prepared to manage projects and processes, lead others, and bring about organizational change.

The Management major will be replaced by the Management & Leadership major beginning in the fall of '23.
This undergraduate program provides solid grounding in all areas of business, as with all business majors at the Mount. The management courses included in the curriculum are designed to help students gain self-awareness, learn and apply the latest insights from business theory and practice, develop management and leadership skills, and chart the next steps in their leadership journey. Throughout the curriculum, values-based leadership and servant leadership are emphasized. Students enter the program as traditional (face to face) or online (asynchronous) students. The entire degree is available in both formats. Traditional students may take online courses and online students may take face to face courses on a space available basis.
