A major, sometimes known as a concentration, is the particular area of business that you choose to specialize in during your undergraduate studies at Hult.
As a successful business school graduate, sooner or later you’ll manage both people and budgets. If you are a good manager, your business—and your career—will prosper. A major in Management will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to take on a leadership role within any industry.
The main benefit of studying Management is that you learn key practices that will help you choose your future career path. Courses like Change Management are so useful, because change is the only constant in business—essential to understand, whatever your discipline. For a student who has yet to decide what they ultimately want to do, Management can help them to determine their specialty.

In the classroom, I am more like a facilitator. I generate a positive atmosphere so students are comfortable, and aren’t afraid of asking questions or making mistakes. I set the tone early on by inviting students to discuss what they think, and many will quickly put their hands up because they already feel confident about contributing. I believe students learn best by asking questions, not being afraid to make mistakes, and developing a critical mind-set as they learn.

One of my favorite courses has been Doing Business in India, as we got to develop projects and ideas for companies to use in developing countries. That gave me a deep understanding of what it is like to face the obstacles in those places—especially useful as I want to start my own international company.

I wanted to study finance in California, so when I saw Hult at a university fair and was told about the diversity in a smaller business school I was really interested. To me, Hult is diverse and business orientated. Here everyone has the chance to grow and make the best of their studies.
