What is Management?

According to the OSU College of Business, "The Management curriculum helps prepare students for careers as managers and supervisors in goods-producing and service enterprises. Students obtain a solid grounding in management of systems, personnel, and quality. The integrative focus of the Management program also provides excellent preparation for graduate-level studies in law, urban and regional planning, public services administration, and health care administration.

"Management is the process of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling that encompasses human, material, and financial resources in an organizational environment. A management option means that you have learned the concepts of getting things done through others within organizations."
