Undergraduate Management Combined Concentration Options

While students can gain an advantage from any of the three combined management concentrations, each one suits a different need and supports its own skill set:

Management/Finance

A combined concentration with finance prepares students interested in moving up the corporate ladder in Wall Street or on Main Street. Students will learn principles of management and leadership that are important to taking on financial leadership roles in financial companies or in the financial function of companies in other industries. The combined concentration gives students an edge with additional general business skills to complement specialized knowledge. Examples of first jobs upon graduation of Albany graduates with this combined concentration include:

  • Financial Advisor
  • Financial Analyst
  • Private Client Banker

Management/ITM

In this era of cloud computing and inter-organizational networks, IT professionals who choose to advance their careers as specialists or as IT executives need to understand how to manage virtual teams, manage IT implementation projects and manage change. Students combining an ITM concentration with Management will enhance their technical training with important knowledge about managing teams, motivating individuals and change management. Examples of first jobs upon graduation of Albany graduates with this combined concentration include:

  • Business process consultant
  • Global Initiatives Project Analyst
  • Human Resource Information Systems Analyst
  • Supply Chain Analyst

Management/Marketing

Graduates with this combined concentration often advance into senior management roles. Management classes featuring topics like executive leadership and decision-making, participative leadership and delegation, and recruiting, selection and career management add value as students with marketing skills gain responsibility and visibility. Here is just a small sample of jobs some management/marketing alumni reported recently.

  • Director of Strategic Marketing
  • Human Resource Manager
  • Marketing Manager
  • Regional Sales Director
