The major in Managerial Studies is an interdepartmental, nonprofessional program designed to provide undergraduates with an understanding of the environment in which businesses and other organizations exist today, and of some of the tools employed by management in the commitment of its financial and human resources. All students taking the Managerial Studies major must also complete at least one of the established departmental or interdepartmental majors, other than an area major. Managerial Studies is not the equivalent of an undergraduate business major at other universities.
