Careers in Management

Management is one of the largest, most varied, and most interesting areas of work in the global economy. To state the obvious, management is the process of managing people and resources in businesses (for a more detailed definition, see below). But that obvious meaning hides a great deal of nuance, with the practice of business management in a given job differing significantly according to the job's specific management function (like operations management versus human resources); the size of the company (like owning a small entrepreneurial venture versus the strategic planning jobs you'll find mainly in large companies); and even the type of organization (like profit-maximizing public companies versus non-profits).

On this site, you'll find the brass-tacks details you need to understand the wide variety of career options in management, including job descriptions, salaries, what people are saying and entry requirements. Do you love risk? There's a management job for you: entrepreneurship. Do you enjoy dealing with people one to one? Human resources may fit your personality. Are you driven by a sense of duty to make the world a better place? You might prefer working for a non-profit. The point is, if you're considering a career in management, it is critical to understand how specific management roles differ so that you can pick the management job that suits you. The categories below describe some of the disciplines that fall under the broad umbrella of "management." Take your time to read through the material here and think over whether a management career could work for you. Best of luck in your search!
