BSBA Co-Major in
Organizational Management

The organizational management co-major at Drexel LeBow prepares students with the skills necessary to be successful in their careers, including leadership, communication, teamwork, cross-cultural sensitivity, negotiation, self-awareness, decision-making and team leadership. These skills are highly coveted by employers and strongly complement core technical knowledge gained in majors such as finance, accounting, marketing and engineering.

Organizational Management Co-major Curriculum

The program provides a solid foundation of skills that are highly sought after in any field. The organizational management co-major can be paired with majors within LeBow or from other Drexel University colleges to help students develop these skills and succeed in their chosen field.

The organizational management co-major focuses on training students to:

  • Develop and exhibit leadership skills
  • Work in and develop diverse teams
  • Build relationships and networks
  • Communicate and negotiate effectively
  • Manage their careers

Coursework

Courses cover a variety of skills necessary to excel in business with a focus on organizational management, including leadership, team development, negotiations and conflict resolution, human resource administration and organizational design. A hallmark of the courses within organizational management is their experiential and hands-on focus. As an example, the Chapel Leadership Development simulation enables students to bring many of these skills to bear as they virtually climb Mt. Everest as a team. In addition, students can choose their area of focus with a wide variety of consulting courses or gain valuable insight into running an organization through a management simulation.
