Management Studies

Management Studies is a Minor Program which can be taken in conjunction with many existing Honours Majors or four-year General Major programs in Arts or Honours Programs in other faculties. Good management must be based increasingly on research and knowledge rather than intuition and experience. Hence, the academic component of this Minor is designed to provide the theoretical background relevant to current management practice, and thus should be useful in many entry-level management jobs, and as a basis for further education in management. The Minor may be combined with a Co-operative Program in order to obtain work experience in the field.

Students in the Arts Applied Studies Co-op program may complete the requirements of the Management Studies Minor and tailor their work terms to this field to add a Management Studies Specialization to their Honours degree.

The program of study consists of ten half-course credits that may be completed at any point in the four-year term.
