Managers are responsible for achieving organizational objectives by coordinating money, materials, machines, and most important of all, the efforts of people.

Managers set objectives, establish policies, plan, organize, direct, communicate, and make decisions. Since their principal concern is solving problems, managers are continually defining problems and seeking solutions. To be an effective manager, an individual needs a broad knowledge of the practice of management, the workings of business and the economy, and the behavior of people. The knowledge obtained in the B.S. degree at SDSU should be sufficient to qualify the student for a broad range of beginning managerial positions in business organizations. The management major offers the unique feature of focusing on the type of organization or industry, as opposed to specific tasks.
