The Minor in Management trains students in the skillsets and knowledge needed to manage people, projects, and organizations; relevant skills that are in high-demand.

As UMBC students progress in their career path, they will move into leadership roles that will require them to effectively manage their resources and employees to succeed in their goals. This minor will focus on learning objectives of Management that are sought after in several industries, including topics related to managing technology, legal contracts, human resources, customer management, and business ethics.
