Understanding the synthesis of human behavior and business practices

Management, which relies on people with good communications and problem-solving skills, is the backbone of business. Today’s management majors need to have an awareness for and sensitivity to diversity, technological advances, sustainability and global development.

Your liberal arts education at Susquehanna University guarantees that you will be ready to step onto the world stage upon graduation. Susquehanna is the only university in the U.S. that promises you will have an international internship, giving you the distinct advantage of cultural competency over your peers from other colleges and universities. Particularly as more people are working remotely all around the world, the competency is becoming more important and necessary to succeed in business.

Aside from the technical skills that you will gain in data management and analytics, you also will learn about organizational structure and what motivates, or disincentivizes, people. Understanding human behavior is just as important to business success as understanding data analytics, statistics and accounting, and you will learn all of these disciplines at Susquehanna. A management degree opens doors, and you can count on Susquehanna’s alumni network. Many Susquehanna graduates work in Fortune 500 companies, and you will have a personal connection with a seasoned alumni mentor during your entire undergraduate career, increasing your employment opportunities.
