The Business Management Department offers both a major and minor in business management. A concentration in international business is available to students who major in business management. International business is also offered as a minor to non-business management students. The Business Management Department trains students to develop analytical and effective communication skills within the framework of a strong liberal arts curriculum. Students are introduced to and expected to practice individual and collective decision making, macro- and micro-level organizational skills, leadership and motivation techniques, and quality control through checks and balances. Business management skills are used in for-profit ventures, not-for-profit organizations, foundations, institutions, educational institutions, and at all levels of government. Students who major in art, dance, music or theatre can add a concentration in arts administration, which is overseen by the Business Management Department.

News and Announcements
Goucher's Business Management Department proudly announces Katie Thompson as winner of the 2016 Borden-Gladding International Management Award, which supports Goucher students while they complete international interships to enhance their career commitment to international business. In Fall 2016 Katie will be studying and working in Torino, Italy with a leading Italian company, such as Nutella or Fiat. She hopes to specialize in finance or human resources management and plans to use her internship to gain insight on how cultural differences influence business functions. "During my time abroad I have even set a goal to visit a large international business in every country I visit. This will give me insight on how business functions vary across Europe." In addition to majoring in Business Management, Katie is a member of the women's track and field team and the Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC). She also serves as President of the Student Empowerment Association (SEA), one of the three branches of Goucher Student Government. Congratulations Katie!
“The three most important things I have learned at Goucher are confidence, openness to experiences and new people, and a sense of curiosity.”
