Beginning fall 2020, students may pursue separate business majors in Business Analytics, Human Resource Management, and Project Management instead of respective career tracks within the Management major.
The Business Analytics major prepares students for professional careers working with data, with an emphasis on the extraction of business meaning from data. The program is not targeted to any one industry; rather, it provides a flexible, practical skillset that can be applied widely.
Human Resource Management
In order to achieve sustainable competitive advantage, organizations must attract, develop, and retain their human capital. With support from top management, Human Resources (HR) is responsible for this process. Elon’s Human Resource Management major fully aligns with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)’s curriculum standards.
Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities to meet project requirements. Elon’s Project Management major provides students with a strong foundation in a professionally recognized project management body of knowledge, opportunities for skill development as project managers, and experience with the tools and techniques essential to effective project work.
