The USF College of Business Administration will provide a high-quality, diverse learning environment preparing students to contribute to and take leading positions in business and society. Our teaching, scholarship and service will link theory and practice to benefit the University and the communities it serves.
The Management major is intended to provide students with an understanding of key concepts in management and the functioning of organizations. In addition to major requirements, all students complete the Business Core, a series of courses that address the need for foundation business knowledge in accounting, economics, finance, marketing, information systems, quantitative methods and the legal environment of business.
Because Management occurs in organizational contexts, the foundation course for the Management major, Organizational Behavior Analysis (MAN 3240), addresses how organizations function, including the behavioral effects of power and authority, formal organization, structural variation, leadership, motivation, and communication. This course, combined with elective courses in management and such related fields as psychology and industrial organization, the business core, and the Strategic Management capstone course, will prepare students for entry-level positions in management/human resources, industrial relations and small business ownership/management, as well as for graduate study in Management.
