Management Degree

Walsh University's Management degree provides students with a solid business foundation along with the planning and leadership skills necessary to inspire and engage employees. Students learn to manage the people, resources, and processes that make up organizations. In addition to gaining experience with negotiation, problem-solving, and conflict resolution, our graduates develop their own leadership style and hone soft skills such as communication, analysis, and critical thinking while observing all aspects of managing a business.  

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics for Management:

Keep in mind that management is very broad by nature, and specializations skew this data, but it is what is available.

  • Median Salary: $105,660
  • Growth by 2029: 5%

Specialization is key and understanding how to leverage your management degree is vital to success.

What makes Walsh's Management curriculum unique?

Hands-on experience. Experiential learning during the third and fourth year transitions Management majors out of the classroom and into the professional world.

Business understanding. Our students learn how important effective management is for an organization's success and ultimate sustainability.

Responsible best-practices. Ethical, social, moral and personal responsibility is emphasized throughout the coursework and embedded in our students' classroom and experiential learning.

Global perspective. We delve into the impact of the global environment on the management field. Our courses also recognize how its practices differ in other countries and cultures.

Integrated Curriculum. We established principles for each major, and these become themes that are carried out and reiterated through the curriculum and any experiential experiences. It's part of our effort to help students retain what they're learning and to offer them a foundation to draw upon throughout their collegiate career and beyond.
