As your first year draws to a close, you’ll take an important professional step and declare a concentration in at least one of our principal fields of business. A management concentration will teach you how to manage people, projects, and programs effectively. You’ll learn how to diagnose and deal with human and organizational dynamics.

Effective managers must understand how the business operates and demonstrate strong interpersonal abilities and ethical behaviors. With this concentration, you’ll explore the principles of leadership, motivation, negotiation, conflict resolution, project management and their impacts on business results, team dynamics, and organizational change.

This concentration pairs well with other D’Amore-McKim concentrations such as finance, marketing, and supply chain, among others.

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.

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.
