Position yourself to lead in a global economy

The UW-Eau Claire Department of Management and Leadership programs offers some of the most sought-after majors on campus. You'll be able to interact with your professors and instructors, compete at regional and national events, and collaborate on real-world projects. These experiences prepare you for a successful career in entrepreneurship, health care administration, human resources, international business, or management.

What kind of career path should I expect?

Majors in the Department of Management and Leadership programs give you access to a wide variety of career opportunities. Not only will you be prepared to work in the business world, but the knowledge and experience you'll gain will provide you with skills that apply to other careers outside of the business world, too.

Bring out your competitive side

Each year, UW-Eau Claire management and leadership students compete in regional and national competitions to sharpen their skills in presenting, negotiating, demonstrating, and problem-solving. These competitions include the following:

  • Entrepreneur Program: UW-Eau Claire Swim with the Sharks, Wisconsin Big Idea Tournament, UW-Eau Claire Perfect Pitch
  • Human Resource Management: Wisconsin SHRM Student Conference and HR Games Competition
  • Strategic Management: UW-Eau Claire Sim Super Bowl.

UW-Eau Claire student competitors are a force to be reckoned with as they compete against -- and beat -- teams from some of the best universities at events held in Wisconsin and around the country.

Invest in your future 

The UW-Eau Claire Foundation and private sources offer scholarships to students based on academic standing, involvement in other activities, citizenship, area of study, and need.
