GET IT DONE
As a management major, you’ll gain a solid foundation in all aspects of management, including presentational speaking, organizational behavior, accounting, financial analysis and strategic business planning. You can prepare for a specialized field by choosing a concentration such as Human Resources, Business Analytics or Manufacturing Management.
Networking is key in business, and it’s key in the College of Business Administration, too. With our small class sizes, you’ll get to know your professors and they will get to know you. In fact, you’ll be assigned a faculty advisor who will mentor you from day one until graduation. You’ll also interact with and learn from business leaders, senior executives, entrepreneurs and ONU alumni who’ve forged amazing careers in many different fields.
Your management program will blend rigorous coursework with real-world learning. You’ll work with actual companies to solve problems in fields such as human resources, manage processes associated with manufacturing and devise an actual strategic plan. You’ll hone skills in leadership, teamwork, creativity and entrepreneurship.
Upon graduation, you’ll be ready for whatever the future holds, whether it’s managing a small business workforce, leading project teams for a Fortune 500 company or starting your own business.
SOCIETY FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF MANAGEMENT (SAM)
SAM is a student organization geared toward students who want to develop management skills and expertise. The group sponsors several social and community service events each year. In addition, SAM hosts alumni dinners in partnership with Sigma Iota Epsilon. In recent years, ONU teams have garnered top placements – beating out teams from business schools across the country – at the Student Case Competition held during the SAM International Business Conference.
Imagine traveling to a big city and meeting with senior executives from top companies – as an undergraduate student! The Executive Classroom is a special course that focuses on leadership and teamwork. The course’s cornerstone is a trip to a major metropolitan area for intense days of meetings, networking and cultural activities. Past classes have traveled to Chicago and visited the Chicago Bears, JP Morgan Chase, AT&T, Deloitte, On Target Performance Group, Harbor Capital Advisors and Cook County Hospital.
Your internship gives you a chance to work in the field and build your résumé. We help you obtain an internship that matches your interests and career aspirations. While many students intern in Ohio, others choose to complete an internship in another state or internationally. Most internships are paid, and many result in offers of full-time employment upon graduation.
LAUREN BROWN BSBA WITH A MAJOR IN MANAGEMENT ’14
ONU taught me that networking and building relationships is the foundation of success. The management program provided me with opportunities to travel across the country to partake in competitions, conferences and presentations – all while expanding my network as I met students and professionals from all over the world. Today, with C10, I do just that. I travel across the U.S. connecting IT leaders through unique experiences.
Lauren Brown graduated from ONU in 2014 with a BSBA in management. She is now the executive coordinator at C10 in Denver, Colo., a firm that connects IT professionals with their peers and trusted partners. In this role, she works directly with senior IT executives across the nation to build and maintain lasting relationships. At ONU, she played soccer, served as editor of the yearbook, was president of the Society of the Advancement of Management, and completed an internship at Honda of America Manufacturing in Marysville, Ohio.
