Program Description

As a Business student in the Management program at Roger Williams University you will learn how to budget, organize, plan, hire, direct, control and otherwise manage complex organizations. You will be challenged to think about issues such as diversity, ethics, politics and the many other dynamics that play a role in every work environment. The Management program at RWU is characterized by a broad variety of classes ranging from managing human resources to planning and control. Academic coursework is complemented by an internship requirement, which provides a hands-on component that amplifies the concepts taught in the classroom, and you will have great flexibility in choosing electives to fit your interests.
