   The Management Major: Management careers are found in all varieties of industries. The work of a business manager involves planning, directing, and coordinating the activities of a company. Often individuals are trained or specialize in a functional area such as accounting, marketing, finance, or human resources. Managers oversee the work of others by building cooperation and performance among workers. Their work may involve analyzing problems, making decisions, delegating assignments, training and supervising staff, budgeting and coordinating activities. Managers can be employed in various sectors (government, education, or private industry). Within any large organization, managers with direct authority for a functional area (sales, finance, accounting) have line management positions. People employed in activities that support these functions (human resources) hold staff management positions.
   Management trainee positions are typically available in the retail, hotel/restaurant, banking, and insurance industries. A training program may last six to twelve months, allowing trainees exposure to the various functional areas within a company. Many people enter management positions with a bachelor's degree. However, a Master's in Business Administration is essential for advancement in some areas.
