Your Career Starts Here!
Systems Management (SM) is the professional major for career-focused students. Modern organizations are growing more complex and need people who have a "Systems Perspective". This is the ability to understand the big picture, adapt to change, and manage accordingly. The SM major is designed to prepare graduates with the knowledge, skills, and values to effectively apply managerial principles and tools in diverse organizational settings.
The SM program emphasizes professional skills including: problem solving, critical thinking, communication, and computer fluency suitable for a 21st-century knowledge worker. In addition, SM majors select an area of Professional Concentration to provide them with additional training in a related area of interest. Students take elective concentration courses in addition to their Systems Management classes. All of this helps make the SM graduate highly competitive for a wide variety of positions.
