Great businesses need great leaders.
If you want to lead anything from a high-profile clothing brand to your own startup, Management might be the right major for you.
As a Management major, you’ll learn how all the parts of an organization work together and how to make strategic decisions about what a company should do to become and stay successful.
Building on the knowledge gained in core business courses—including accounting, business law, finance, and economics—required major classes allow you to dive deeper into specific business activities, including launching a new business venture, hiring and managing employees, and working with financial data.
You’ll dig into fashion company case studies so you can see how what you’re learning gets put into action in real life. For instance, in your sustainability course you may explore Patagonia’s commitment to reducing harm to the environment; or, in your supply chain class, you might discover how the jeans you’re wearing start as cotton grown in Egypt, then get spun into fibers in Indonesia, sewn in Vietnam, and sold in your local store. Through your courses and internships, you’ll learn to think strategically and bring people together to achieve business objectives.
Management majors also have the freedom to take several electives in other departments, allowing you to pursue a minor in whatever interests you, such as Visual Studies or Fashion Merchandising.

Whatever you decide, you’ll graduate ready to become a dynamic leader.
