The Management Major
At Marietta College
As a management major, you will help local businesses solve real problems. You can also connect with local entrepreneurs and social innovators in our PioPitch program. Or work on your leadership skills with experts at our McDonough Center for Leadership and Business.
Internships and your senior capstone experience will help you tailor your degree. For your capstone, you can choose one of two options: Business Policies and Practices focuses on formulating and executing effective strategy for corporations in both international and domestic markets. In the second capstone alternative, Business Consulting, student teams work as consultants to help local businesses achieve goals and solve problems. Teams report findings and recommendations in a public presentation similar to a professional consulting firm.

What You Can Do With a Management Degree
At Marietta, students pursue serious research projects — and that research is celebrated each spring during the campus-wide All Scholars Day, when work is presented to the campus community. These presentations include capstone projects and internship reflections, and they also reinforce professional communication skills — an invaluable took in the eyes of every employer.
Students interested in further graduate study will find they have the course requirements and faculty support necessary to pursue an MBA or other master's degree options.
