Management Professor Annette Godown

The field of management offers opportunities that are challenging, diverse, and rewarding in nature.  All organizations have a common characteristic, which is the need for good managers.  Organizations–whether they are for profit or nonprofit, public or private, large, medium, or small, national or international in scope–need effective managers.


Because managerial skills are universal in their application, career opportunities are varied.  Supervisory and managerial positions can be found in retailing, health care, recreation and leisure facilities, food service, distributorships, wholesaling, manufacturing, and the financial services industry.  In addition, many opportunities exist in organizational supportive positions such as those involving personnel, labor relations, and health and safety.
