Turn Economic Theory into Actionable Business Practices

The dynamic nature of organizations has created the need for professionals who understand systems and people, and can use this to effectively problem solve and make decisions. As you complete the management program, you'll develop strong analytical and inter-personal skills and learn how to put them to good use in an ethical, value-driven way. You'll have hands-on experience and work with professors with extensive industry experience.

The Jon M. Huntsman School of Business attracts and hires dynamic professors with extensive real-world and international experience. The goal is to ensure students learn how to apply what they read in textbooks to actual organizational situations and to appreciate the broader context within which decision making occurs. Management professors are student-focused, both inside and outside the classroom. They take the time to mentor students, and help them position themselves for out-of-class experiences, internships, and job opportunities that can propel their career development. They are leaders in their respected fields who put the student experience first.
