They will have the foundation to allow them to manage human resources, the operation of a business, and move up the career ladder successfully. Students from Concord who have had an emphasis in management have gone on to become Human Resource professionals, pastors, to work for the federal government, to be expatriates, and to be entrepreneurs in a variety of fields, both in the United States and internationally.
