The management major is one of the three majors offered by PNW’s Department of Managerial Studies at the College of Business, which is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
I learned about people operations, how important leadership is, and how to manage a team effectively and ethically. I knew I wanted to work with people and that it would be my best route.
When I first visited the university, I liked the small class sizes with the ability to get to know my professors and I really liked the campus community. All of these things helped me choose PNW. I loved the whole school.
The ability to manage my time and be able to work with others are two of the key skills I was able to take from my school environment and apply to my work life.
