Management at St. Mary’s

What is the Management Major?

The Management program in the Greehey School of Business ensures that students gain skills in leadership, negotiation, communication, data analysis, decision making, innovation and change.

We develop the ethical leaders of tomorrow who are prepared to lead responsible organizations and achieve careers of meaning and purpose.

“All of the professors in the Greehey School of Business encouraged me to go above and beyond just learning the facts. They taught in real-world settings and helped to connect content to real situations. I truly believe that is a something unique for St. Mary’s because, yes, I was learning the curriculum, but even more my professors were shaping me to be a leader outside of the classroom.” – Devan Hartung (B.B.A. ’15)
