Tough global competition requires companies to be extremely responsive to the needs and expectations of customers. In addition, many companies today are in a period of rapid changes brought about by technological breakthroughs, business globalization, and extended supply chains. In such a time, the role of the manager and the management professional in facing these challenges and maintaining a competitive edge becomes even more important. Our Management options provide students with an exciting and diverse education in various areas of management including human resource management and organizational behavior, operations and supply chain management, strategy and international business, and information technology management. Past and present employers of our Management students include almost all major firms, and numerous small and mid-size companies in the Bay Area.
