Management

The Management major will provide you with an overview of business operations, including techniques to strategically align the human, technology and financial assets of a firm. It will prepare you for a career in a variety of service-delivery, manufacturing, consulting, non-profit and digital business environments.

Choose from one of six concentrations -- general management, entrepreneurship, human resources, leadership and change management, operations management, or sports management. The courses you take will be tailored to the concentration you choose.

You'll also benefit from programs and networking events at DePaul’s Coleman Entrepreneurship Center, Center of Innovation and Sheikh Faisal Center for Entrepreneurship in the Middle East, as well as DePaul’s presence in Chicago’s 1871 business incubator.

DePaul's Driehaus College of Business is located in downtown Chicago, in the heart of the city's business district, providing you with countless opportunities to intern and work professionally with leading business organizations.
