You are all managers. Managers of your own life. Managers of your time. Managers of your classes, assignments, teamworks and GPA's. Managers of your household. Managers of your own finances.
In the Business Administration program, we study management as the organization and coordination of the activities of a business in order to achieve defined objectives. It consists of the interlocking functions of creating corporate policy and organizing, planning, controlling, and directing an organization's resources in order to achieve the objectives of that policy (Businessdisctionary.com).
‘Business’ includes for-profit and not-for profit companies, new and existing enterprises, private companies, government organizations and NGO's. The following subfields are all part of Management:
Human resources management
Innovation (technological, social)
Sustainability (social, environmental)
Why Specialize in Management?
Management specialization may be the right choice for you, if you are interested in:
How businesses work, why they exist and how they can be changed and improved;
How businesses decide about their future, how they develop, allocate and use resources productively, and how they make that future economically, environmentally and socially sustainable;
How businesses can function in a global marketplace, how they internationalize, how they manage their people and activities in different countries;
How people behave in businesses, how they can be motivated, how their behavior differs between cultures, how leaders can lead in the most effective way;
How businesses change, through innovation or through technology or how new businesses are created through entrepreneurship;
Career Opportunities in Management
Jobs in management are as varied as the field itself. You may become your own boss as an entrepreneur, you may become the general manager of your family company, you may become a team leader, a human resource officer, a business development officer, an innovation manager, a general manager, a management consultant, a sustainability manager, a project manager, a manager of a process or a department, a customer relationship or account manager, a network manager, a risk manager, a business analyst, or any of many other possibilities.
The Business Administration program at Özyeğin University, of which the Management specialization is a part, prepares you for a position in a business with a global perspective. That can be a local Turkish business or one from abroad. It can be a very small enterprise or a multinational corporation. It can be a shareholder-oriented moneymaking machine or a charity organization. You decide. You create your own future.
