Management Minor

The management minor is targeted toward non-business and non-management business majors. Students in many academic disciplines need management and supervisory skills in order to advance in their chosen profession. Students will learn how to apply management concepts and principles to improve services, products, and operations within organizations across a wide array of industries.  

The minor is flexible by design. Non-business students will take the introductory management course, plus four courses drawn from a multidisciplinary list of options, allowing students to incorporate an emphasis in the area of management (e.g., human resources, organizational behavior, operations management, sports management, international management, or business law) that best meets their needs. Non-management business students take two entry-level courses in organizational behavior (how to motivate and lead people) and human resources (personnel systems and tools). The other three elective courses come from the above areas that best meets their needs.

The minor consists of 15 credit hours.  Management majors are not allowed to complete the management minor.

At least three of the five courses must be completed at Kansas State University. Prior permission is required from the College of Business Administration to take a class at another institution. Prerequisites and requisites associated with the management courses must be followed. The minor will be awarded upon or after being awarded a baccalaureate degree and students must earn a minimum 2.50 KSU cumulative GPA across all five courses to graduate with the minor.
