Management Course as an Elective

Management is found everywhere! there is no job in the world which does not require management. We can see management put in place from the workforce to sports and much more. I strongly recommend students to take a management course as an elective. From experience, the management course at Scholastica is specifically built to build networking among students, enhance critical thinking skills and improve written and verbal communication. I was first intrigued with my first management course, principles of management, because of the structure of it. Being paired up with two random students within the classroom and taking the initiative to fire them or keep them if the group did not collaborate well. In addition, I noticed that the course was perfectly designed to also benefit non-management majors. I believe all majors will only benefit by taking a management course. I am currently taking quantitative methods and the structure is similar. Throughout the semester, we work elaborately and intensely to complete several projects. The best part of the projects is that we take what we learn during class and apply it to any scenario. We are encouraged to do further research to come to certain conclusions based on the topics we choose. I just finished up working on a quality control method. Since I enjoy soccer, I decided to do the project based on the Spanish premier league. I took the top ten score leaders and calculated their shot error for 120 shots. Based on the number of errors, using statistical analysis and the QM software, I was able to act as a manager to come to certain conclusions in how to better improve player performance. This is where all majors are welcome to take a management course. Based on our self-interest, we can choose topics we enjoy or can easily relate and run this method. For instance, CSS is well known for their nursing program. A nurse can take this course and do a quality control by sampling ten nurses and calculating their errors. For a nurse practitioner, the error can be calculated by studying how many times the nurse practitioner failed to prescribed the correct medication to their first 100 patients of the year.

Another interesting project we have worked on during this course is forecasting using several different methods. The methods can be used to forecast sales, job performance, and much more. Managers use these methods to predict upcoming results. This method is very beneficial to every major and interesting. I strongly recommend it and believe me, it will only distinguish you from others in your field.
