    Description

    The Management and Industrial Relations major prepares graduates to enter the workplace as supervisors, operations managers, human resources technicians and start-up entrepreneurs. It prepares students to address the opportunities in the global job market appropriately.

    Research, special projects and independent study permit each student to fit the major to their personal interests, values and aspirations.

    Specific operations issues as well as broad management policy concerns are covered equally, assuring relevance of studies to entry-level positions and readiness for growth in any organization, domestic or global.

    Maximum flexibility in selection to fulfill major requirements is offered. After completion of core courses in interpersonal relations and human resource management, the student may elect courses in small business and entrepreneurship, advanced operations management, human resource skills and programs, labor law and conflict management, to complete the major.

    Students following an entrepreneurial studies track, for instance, would take the course in small business, advanced operations management, labor law and complete an independent study focused on preparation of a comprehensive business plan for a prospective business start-up.

    Students in the Bachelor's Degree in Management and Industrial Relations program should consult with the designated undergraduate advisor to plan the selection and sequencing of courses to satisfy the major requirements.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
