As your freshman year draws to a close, you’ll take an important professional step and declare a concentration in one of seven principal fields of business. D’Amore-McKim students who concentrate in Management will learn the principles of motivation, leadership, negotiation, conflict resolution, project management, managing teams, organizational change, and their impact on business results.
Managing people, projects, and programs requires a considerable range of knowledge and skills. Effective managers must understand the business, be interpersonally competent, behave ethically, and diagnose and deal with human and organizational dynamics. Assemble the right toolbox with concentration courses that emphasize “how to” manage effectively. Some of your courses will be primarily skills oriented; they teach “how to.” Others are more content oriented; they teach “about management.”
Find the full set of Management concetration requirements in Northeastern’s Course Catalog. Concentrations are taken as a complement to one of the business degree programs offered. Upperclassmen: Please consult the Course Catalog appropriate to your class year and your academic advisor to ensure your coursework is on track.
Another great course was Negotiation in Business. It was very hands on. In almost every class, we were trying out a new negotiation technique or skill.Alicia Kennedy, BSBA’17
In my current co-op, I have been able to listen to the firm’s CEO give a talk about the company’s future. I realized I would one day like to be in his shoes, running a company.Javier Nunez Silva, BSBA’17
