The OMS major explores organizations, how they behave within the context of societal issues, how people in those organizations behave, and how those organizations are managed. Students gain a strong foundation in organization theory and behavior, statistics, research methods, and systems thinking.
Critical thinking, rigorous inquiry, and the acquisition of knowledge -instead of just skills- are central to the OMS curriculum, and the Business Minor is designed to give students in any major a solid grounding in the core principles of business.
