OMS Major & Business Minor

The Management Department offers a major in Organization and Management Studies (OMS) and a minor in Business, which integrate the study of these important fields into the liberal arts and sciences.

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.

Business Minor

The business minor-which includes courses in finance, marketing, accounting, organizational behavior, and economics, plus one elective-is designed to give students in any major a solid grounding in the core principles of business.

The Department of Management Executive-in-Residence Program was initiated and endowed in honor of John H. Hauser by his family. Mr. Hauser, a philanthropist and business leader in Adams County, not only served on the board of trustees for Gettysburg College, but also contributed generously to the college in the form of many gifts. The focus of the Hauser Executive-in-Residence Program is business ethics and business morality in recognition of John Hauser’s strong passion for these aspects of business.
