The Management major at Lenoir-Rhyne has a liberal arts core and sets the foundation for graduates to excel and advance as leaders in management careers. The program features courses in management theory and provides students with a broad background in all areas of business and leadership, as well as expertise in specific management fields like production or operations management, human resources management, and/or small business management. Graduates from the program are well-prepared for postgraduate studies in all areas of business.

Qualified Management students interested in continuing their Business education through graduate study can easily matriculate into Lenoir-Rhyne’s Master of Business Administration program. Through LR’s innovative Bridges to Dreams and Alumni Advantage programs, students who complete their undergraduate degrees at Lenoir-Rhyne University are able to complete their graduate degrees in shorter time and at significantly less expense (up to nearly half off the standard MBA degree at LR).




Students studying Management have many opportunities to learn outside of the classroom through internships with local and regional businesses, corporations, and non-profit organizations. Students gain firsthand experience working alongside experienced leaders and professionals in a wide range of management activities. Management majors have access to the many out-of-class opportunities in Business, including conference attendance, student organizations, study abroad, alumni mentoring, and community outreach and research (working within a course or independently with a faculty mentor).


Management is an essential skill in any effective business or other organizational setting. Accordingly, the career opportunities for Management majors is extensive. The major also provides excellent preparation for more advanced graduate work or other certificate and/or licensure programs. Management majors learn about organizational structures and behavior—formal and informal, which prepare them to address the many issues that may arise in corporate or other organizational settings. Examples of career options include (but are not limited to) operations management, organizational analysis and consulting, and project management—across private, non-profit, and public arenas at all levels of life.
