Undergraduate Program

The Management Department offers coursework and concentrations that develop the knowledge and expertise to manage complex, established enterprises or to guide start-up enterprises in their formative years. Our content encompasses strategic and entrepreneurial management, as well as the management of people and organizations across national and cultural borders. Our offerings provide a solid foundation for initial placements in firms of all types and signal your future managerial interests to employers in all sectors.

The Management concentration spans coursework offered across the department’s research areas (strategic management, multinational management, human social capital, organizational behavior, and entrepreneurial management). Concentrators may also elect optional specializations in Multinational Management, Organizational Effectiveness, or Strategic Management. You may find this concentration particularly attractive if you are seeking an initial placement in consulting or in a large multinational firm, and if you wish to develop your managerial skills through deeper understanding of human behavior and relationships within and across organizations.

The Entrepreneurship & Innovation concentration spans a wide range of coursework across Wharton. Concentrators interested in either startups or in developing new businesses within established firms can customize their program with applied coursework from Finance, Health Care Management, Legal Studies and Business Ethics, Management, Marketing, Operations Information and Decisions, and Real Estate. While you may find this concentration particularly attractive if you have immediate or future plans to start your own company, this toolkit will also be useful for inculcating an entrepreneurial mindset in any organization.
