The Washington State University Vancouver Catalog

Management

The online catalog includes the most recent changes to courses and degree requirements that have been approved by the Faculty Senate, including changes that are not yet effective. Courses showing two entries of the same number indicate that the course information is changing. The most recently approved version is shown first, followed by the older version, in gray, with its last-effective term preceding the course title. Courses shown in gray with only one entry of the course number are being discontinued.

Management(120 Hours)

The Management major has been developed for students interested in pursuing a career as a professional manager. In addition to learning vital management skills such as planning, organizing, leadership, and controlling, students will gain marketable skills by choosing one of two tracks. The Human Resource Management (HRM) track provides skills in areas such as selection, training, motivating, evaluating, and compensating employees. The Innovation and Change (I&C) track provides skills in areas such as managing innovation in networks and teams and managing organizational change processes.

Graduation Requirements
A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 in all Carson College of Business (CCB) courses required for the major is required for graduation. The calculation will only count WSU business courses that are taught by the CCB including HBM courses. Economic Sciences courses or any other courses outside the college are not included.

Management majors are required to complete a minimum of 9 upper-division business courses in residence. Students within the College of Business must complete an International Experience Requirement option, see catalog for more information.
